Karen said, I am incredibly excited to be back on stage with FIREDANCE. So much passion was poured into the show in early 2020, we performed 7 totally electric shows before Covid stopped us in our tracks. With hypnotic beats, stunning choreography and our very own feisty Latin dance production – I cannot wait! See you in 2022!
