The fire belt is used to illuminate and accentuate the movements of the dancer. It is called a “belt” because of its placement on ones body; securely fastened around ones waist. The belt itself is not on fire, Instead, there are six fire wicked spokes that stick out seven inches from the performers body. Once lit, the tips of the flames rise to the height of the wearer’s rib cage and sway with every movement of the performer. At this time, the fire belt is not designed to hold up ones pants. Maybe someday it will serve a dual purpose. It’s especially beautiful when combined with belly dance.
