Conclave: Hellfire Society
Year: 2016
What we like about this: Finale's should be a culmination of your entire show. This finale is a fantastic example of what can be achieved when you sync a large number of the same fire tool. It is everything we like: intent, practice, well thought out, beautifully executed, visually pleasing and BIG FIRE!!!

Conclave: UK Fireworks Collective
Year: 2015
What we like about this: A large variety of props are beautifully executed in a cohesive and coordinated manner. Routine show well thought out, displaying both intent and practice. It never looks chaotic, disjointed or renegade-like. Both exciting and visually pleasing.

Conclave: MythMaker
Year: 2016
What we like about this: Large props are incorporated into the dance as large background fire for Dragon Staves, but they are not just a stationary prop or background fire. They move to make patterns which results in a well balanced routine which is visually pleasing.

Conclave: New Model Circus Army
Year: 2017
What we like about this: Combat choreography is well rehearsed, resulting in moves that look realistic. Speed and strength of contact add to realism, and there are no pauses or hesitation. Since two combatants are not a lot of fire, the piece is framed with background fire.

Conclave: Radient Heat
Year: 2016
What we like about this: Multiple props are coordinated and framed in a way that it accentuates movement, rather than blocking it. Routine is well rehearsed and visually pleasing.

Conclave Group: Southern Fire
Year: 2017
What we like about this Video: The duet is well thought out, practiced, and executed. It has a high level of interaction between the two performers. The transition from duet to next routine is subtle and fades elegantly without a rough cut or dead space.

Conclave: Surreal Fire
Year: 2017
What we like about this: Large props are incorporated into the dance itself, not just a stationary prop or background fire. Routine is well rehearsed, thought out, and visually pleasing.

The Fire Conclave Video Library is an educational tool developed by the Fire Conclave Council in an effort to provide its members with visual examples of different dance/choreography aspects. It is our goal that these examples will act as a guide, aiding members in understanding the essential elements that make up fire performance in the Great Circle.

The Fire Conclave Council is dedicated to managing the Artistic Direction, Production, Logistics, and Design of Burning Man’s annual Burn Night activities through the cultivation and development of fire groups from all over the world (with an emphasis on audience and performer safety) in order to achieve the largest unified fire performance in the world.

Thank you to all the Shins and Fire Groups that helped to make this channel possible.
