ADAM SOLKO

Adam Solko commands the stage with a finesse that comes with nearly a decade of performing. This, in conjunction with experience from working in the medical field, has enabled him to push the boundaries of fire performance and create a show like no other. Adam has performed in Minnesota, Iowa, Michigan, Wisconsin, Florida, and all along the East Coast. As the Physical Therapy Neuroscience Specialist at Regions Hospital Rehabilitation Institute, Adam's client-centered approach has set him apart as a leader in his field. His reputation has built relationships and invitations to speak at Healthpartners, HealthEast, Tria, Park Nicolett, The University of Minnesota and the Federal Reserve Bank of Minnesota.

Adam's skill as a performer has allowed him the opportunity to perform in arenas of thousands as well as in intimate gathers. His focused attention to detail has set the base for the direction the Fandazzi Fire shows. He is not only a performer, but also the artistic director and prop master of the group. Building each prop from scratch, Adam has an understanding of the mechanics each prop possesses, allowing him to push each performer and prop to create a visual feast of each audience member.

BRET PASEK

Bret "theAxe" possesses a natural aptitude for handling fire. His ability to understand the partnership of body and flame was instrumental in earning the title of the Fastest Fire Eater in the World. He is featured in the Guinness World Record for eating 99 torches in one minute. Bret has performed in Iowa, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Florida, as well as numerous venues in downtown St. Paul and Minneapolis.

Bret's creative approach to fire comes from an "out-of-the-box" perception of the relationship between fire and body. Without formal training in the art of fire, acting, or body mechanics, he has become an exceptional performing artist through self-teaching, dedication, and extreme discipline. Through trial-and-error he learned the ins and outs of fire performance. His prowess for the fire arts, joined with his experience as a Latin dancer, earned Bret the position of assistant choreographer of the group.

Due to his unique perspective and concern for fire safety, Bret was appointed the "incident commander" of Fandazzi Fire. He has implemented safety practices and policies within the group that have ensured that the group has never had a fire-related injury or incident, allowing the members of Fandazzi to present a one-of-a-kind presentation of fire and dance that is safe for audience members and performers alike.

KATY SOLKO

Katy illuminates the stage with grace and poise. She has extensive training in hula, tap, and modern dance. It is her experience and background in the performing arts that enables Fandazzi Fire to perform a dynamic and engaging show that appeals to audiences of all ages. Katy has experience on and behind the stage, working as a performer, spot operator, and sound and light tech since a young age.

Her ability to breakdown movements and music into their individual components has earned her the title as lead choreographer. With her at the helm of creative design for Fandazzi, the group has developed and performed more than 100 unique and inspired dances for audiences across the nation.

THERESA MEIS

Theresa loves the story-telling aspect of being a performer, and works diligently to create a unique experience for the audience through movement and fire each time she steps onto the stage.

She has a dynamic theater and performance background, and has enjoyed being a part of the performing arts community since childhood. She is particularly passionate about fire dancing, singing, and costuming.

Theresa has grown as both a dancer and fire artist throughout her tenure with Fandazzi. It was through Fandazzi that she first discovered her abilities as a fire artist, and over the years she has enjoyed adding new and more challenging props, pairings, and choreography to her repertoire.

Raederle Sterling

Raederle Sterling has been with Fandazzi since the very beginning. She has been performing her entire life and started working at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival at the age of about 3 weeks old. She has taken on a number of roles, but found her true home dancing with fire. Raederle is a trained dancer, percussionist, and martial artist. She has been trained in a wide range of arts; including such dance styles as Scottish dance, tribal fusion, musical theater, and holds a black belt in Tae Kwon Do. Raederle graduated with degrees in Theater, Dance, and English. She currently teaches English to inner city high school students, and works very hard to integrate the arts into her work.
