what is flair bartendering by WFA (world flair Association)

Flair is described in the english dictionary

(i) a natural/ genius talent or apititude;
(ii) distinctive elegance or style;
(iii) instinctive discernment; keenness;
Flair bartending dates back to the early 1800's where bartenders used to mix fire liquids in order to impress their customers. Today flairing is considered a sport and a lifestyle by many. It combines and explosive mix of grace, agility and danger and it climaxes, not in the reedy whine of a referee's whistle, but in a cracking cocktail.
Dancing with glass and liquids ensures the full & complete attention of both performing bartender and spectator alike. Add music, photographers, screaming audiences and a double shot of intense competition and you begin to appreciate the skill levels displayed by the World's best flair bartenders.
The World Flair Association is a global network brought together by four giant names in the World of Flair, who felt there was a need in promoting & assisting different countries in their events by sharing their combined experiences gained by being heavily involved within the Flair and the service industry in general.
Whether in competition, exhibition or behind the bar the WFA prides itself in the sharing of knowledge, good times and providing the platform for modern ethical performance bartending and events organisation.
Since it's launch in the beginning of 2008 the WFA has gone from strength to strength and have seen unprecedented succes by linking like minded individuals the world over with the same passion and drive for the sport or art of flair as we can now proudly call it.
