Since man has been able to control fire, ceremonial dances with flames has always been a part of old cultures in Samoa, Mexico, New Zealand, and elsewhere. But now a days, you will rarely see someone doing a warrior dance around you, however, the art form has continued to evolve and it’s been beautifully captured with today’s cameras.
