Fire dancing is embedded in Polynesian culture, which is why it is a must see experience when visiting Tahiti. Traditionally these dances were used as a warrior ritual of intimidation, or as a method of communicating with divinities to give thanks. However, today they are performed to visitors either by a lone performer, or in a group, displaying incredible fire stunts and intricate movements.
