Potland, ME (NEWS CENTER)-- John Geyerhahn believes playing with fire isn't always bad. He is a street performer with the Portland Fire Dancers Collective. His specialty is juggling torches.
Known as "Ziggy," he can entertain crowds with a variety of juggling tricks. The most sensational is juggling flaming torches.
"The fire keeps me warm a little bit," said Geyerhahn, "but what keeps me warmer than the fire is just staying moving like in football or any other sport."
John says the rhythm is the key. He has juggled up to seven balls.
The world record is 20 which has been done by four performers.
Ziggy is often seen on the streets of Portland or at various festivals and shows.
