Belly dance show in PE

Nicky Gouws of Rakshada Bellydancers

A Bay bellydance studio is inviting fans of this exotic art to a gypsy-oriental-Halloween show next weekend to raise funds for students to perform in the Middle East.

Rakshada Bellydancers is joining dancers from Port Elizabeth, East London, Gauteng and Serbia for the performance on October 29 at the Londt Park sports club hall in Fernglen.

Rakshada bellydancer Nicky Gouws said the “beautiful dancers” from Serbia now living in Cape Town would be a highlight.

“We are hosting the show, which is part gypsy, oriental and Halloween, in aid of a fund raiser for our local studio to tour Egypt to participate there in workshops with international dancers” said Gouws.

The artists are Ajsa Samia from Serbia, Diamonds of Kahire from Pretoria, Cario Moon from Johannesburg and Desert Divas from East London. Bay singer Elston Benjamin will emcee and he and Gypsy King singer, George White, will also perform a few numbers.

The show is at 6pm and tickets are R130, which includes the dance studios as well as the music.
