While in Costa Rica in 2003, Jillian Forte learned the art of fire spinning and returned to Duluth to practice and teach her own brand of pyro performance to others. In 2008 her troupe became known as the Spin Collective. A few spinners have come and gone over the years, with the current lineup featuring Jayme Hudson, Denise Hooper, Matt Lindberg, Briana Sterle, Aleasha Hladilek, Shauna Heckman Schanzenbach and Sherry Christiansen. They captivate crowds with flaming poi, hula hoops, fans and staffs at performances throughout the Twin Ports. This year promises more fiery apparatus in the form of welded metal art, headdresses, fire bowls and more.
