Boracay – Fire Dancers
Firedancers have been a fixture and institution in Boracay, much like the blue-sail boats, banana boats and all-you-can-eat buffets. There are several groups of firedancers in Boracay (some performing in the customer-only bars and restos) but the most famous group perhaps is the Boracay Phoenix Firedancers. They are a group of gays (some in women’s costume others in men’s costume) perform in the beach in station 2.
I’ve seen them before when I first went to Boracay but the amazement didn’t go away when I saw them again. They are a group I’d happily fork over money even if it is not required (some members go around with a basket asking voluntarily for money. I’m not a too keen on giving money to public performers but they are too good and amazing not to give money to.
