FemPyre was founded in 2017 to bring a new concept to North Texas’ performing arts scene — an all-female troupe of movement artists producing hypnotic acts featuring fire and LED props. The organization, which has hit stages all over the region, is helmed by Brianna Apsara, and Jo England.

Besides stage shows throughout Texas and beyond, FemPyre also hosts regular skill shares that serve to provide a safe, family-friendly learning environment for women interested in fire and flow arts.
