What you'll do

Cat is international award-winning variety performer Vixen DeVille with 15 years experience in Fire Eating and Flame Manipulation. At the historic Zephyr Theatre on famous Melrose Ave she will take you through the theory and safety precautions behind fire eating and body burning. We'll then actually light up the torches and explore this performance art fully with hand transfers, tongue transfers and of course, extinguishing the flame with your mouth.

This is NOT an illusion! By the end of the session you'll be fire eating and body burning like a pro.

Other things to note:
Wear close-fitting clothes, sleeveless is ideal and either leggings or shorts. Flat shoes, no heels. Avoid wearing lipstick or body moisturizer & avoid use of hairspray. Long hair should be tied back.

This experience is available for the single traveller but also ideal to book as a private event for a group experience - please contact me for more availability if your preferred date and time isn't currently listed.

I am an award-winning burlesque & variety performer.

I first learnt this skill back in 2006 whilst working with a magician in London. I was amazed at how simple this very impressive skill was, and have since been exploring various techniques, and have added fire flow, fire breathing and fire bubbles to my repertoire.

Since moving to LA in 2012 I have performed on TV's "Masters Of Illusion", CBS This Morning and have toured my solo show all over the US, teaching audience members to eat fire during the show!

I am passionate about teaching seemingly unavailable skills to those who wish to learn, the human body is amazing!
YOU are amazing!
We all need a reminder sometimes!

For more than 50 years, the Zephyr has been a mainstay of the Los Angeles theater scene and has hosted writers and performers at every level of achievement.

"And we gonna let it burn, burn, burn!" Well kinda, especially if you can't blow out the fire, witch, I will say, was actually the hardest thing to do, at least on the first try. Run on sentence over. The class was simply marvelous and fire! Playing with fire, transferring fire, either by tongue or by other stick. Very, berry good class, and definitely thinking about taking this one again, or the more intermediate version. 🔥 For this class there were 12 of us, witch I'm going to say is pretty normal number. All of us definitely got better and much more comfortable as the time went on. Definitely would recommend this class and it was definitely a great experience! 10 Lit Torches out of 10 lit torches!

hands down the best experience I could have asked for! She does amazing job progressing slowly so that we get friendly with the fire. Despite having so many different member groups, she did a good job accommodating for everyone. Hope to come back for next time for level 2 ! = P

A highly recommended experience, if you're having doubts, do it! It's great fun and only in LA could you learn to eat fire with an enthusiastic and seasoned professional like Cat!

Yes, within 70 minutes, we really were eating fire. I thought I would chicken out but Cat was great at teaching, helping us feel safe and building up to the big challenge.

Cat was fantastic conversation and helped everyone feel comfortable with handling fire. I may have found a new passion because of her! Will definitely be back for another session! Thanks Cat!!

This was an absolutely fascinating experience! Cat taught us much more than we had anticipated ever learning to do. She is an incredible, patient and nerve-calming teacher for something we were equally excited and nervous to do! Loved it!
