Firestorm Performance Troupe is proud to feature the talents of:


Alisha "Illusia" Loewen

Illusia fell in love with hula hooping after seeing it performed at a music festival two years ago. Since then, she has been experimenting with every avenue of hooping performance from burlesque to fire. This graceful creative lady is a joy to behold as she performs as though the ring of fire is an extension of her. She hopes to dazzle you at your next event!

Chris "Apollo" Rootes


Rootez was introduced to poi at the summer festival, Shambhala, in 2007. At the same festival, he admired the freedom of expression of the hoopers he saw performing. When he tried the hoop for the first time in 2009, he discovered his passion and quickly worked his way up to hooping with fire. Rootez looks forward to entertaining you with his fearless and sexy style at your next event!


Justin "Flare" Buss

Performing from an early age, Flare has had a steady career in musical theatre before becoming involved in Circus arts and fire manipulation. His specialty is Roue Cyr, and fire baton. Fuelled by a fiery passion for the arts, Justin hopes to study at L’école Nationale du Cirque in Montréal, before auditioning for Cirque du Soleil.

This nimble acrobat will floor you with his incredible skills and flare!

Kez "Phoenix" Arsenault

Phoenix is the Director of the FireStorm Performance Troupe. She has been a performer all of her life; singing, dancing, improv theatre and more. In 2006, she attended her first poi class and loved the challenge, seeing the endless possibilities for visual expression. In 2009, Phoenix spun fire for the first time, forming FireStorm six months later. Her love of prop manipulation has grown to include fire-fans, fire-staff, and most recently, the fire-whip. She had the honor of performing before an international audience of thousands at the Burning Man Festival 2010 with the Alberta fire troupe, Thermal Shock Mafia.

She is proud to be working with the talented artists of FireStorm and is looking forward to entertaining you soon!
