Fire Conclave is a select group of fire dancers who help create the ceremony around our Effigy burn. They work tirelessly prior to the event to present a choreographed performance you'll want to experience. The Apogaea Fire Conclave mirrors the Burning Man Conclave tradition of an honored dance before burning the Man. Learn more about the Burning Man Fire Conclave to understand the origins of the Apo Conclave.
If you're not a member of Fire Conclave, can you still spin fire? Absolutely! All you need to do is respect the safety requirements and take the quick training offered during the event before you express your fire art!

Safety training is required for anyone who wants to spin fire at any point during the event. They need to attend a fire safety meeting held at 4PM on Thurs-Sat with last safety meeting at 7PM on Sat. Meet at the Heart of Gold Effigy.
Fire spinners must be reasonably sober and have a reasonably sober, competent safety at all times, no exceptions.
Fire spinning is ONLY permitted in approved areas by individuals who have attended a safety meeting, with fuel dumps only in approved areas. Failure to abide by these regulations will result in disciplinary consequences, including revocation of permission to spin fire or removal from the event in extreme cases.
