Fire Under the Full Moon

Leslie Harris here, and last night, I did one of my favorite summertime activities. I danced under the light of the full moon, with some amazing drummers and fire dancers.

During the warm months, the city of Chicago hosts the Chicago Full Moon Jam on the grass near Foster Ave Beach, within a day or two of the full moon. Last last night’s super full moon was spectacular, especially when viewed on Lake Michigan.

The crowd sits in a large circle, with the drummers on the outside of the circle. One by one, the fire dancers enter the circle. There are usually about five or six fire dancers in The Circle at any given time, and they might be twirling batons or have other fiery apparatus that they are dancing with.

It’s really cool, and it’s free!
