A group of dancers will be shaking it to raise funds for charity.

The management of Sanaa-Moon Belly Dance Studio in Bergvliet is inviting other dance schools to help raise much-needed funds for Enviro Wildfire Services.

Enviro Wildfire Services is a registered NPO that provides wildfire management help to landowners, organisations, fire-fighting departments and communities in the province.

Genevieve James, a teacher and the founder of the belly dancing sudio, says they choose a charity each year to help with fundraising. “With the devastating fires recently we thought this year we would raise funds for Enviro Wildfire Services. The fires of late have been horrible and they lost most of the equipment and some of them are worn out, so they really need help. As a dance group we are pulling other people as well to give entertainment whilst raising funds,” she says.

The studio’s show this year is a “rock-inspired” belly dancing show and features a number of dancers from other dance schools in Cape Town and includes dancing styles like belly dancing, hip-hop and Korean pop. “The evening will be for everyone. We will have fun and we know at the end of the day we will help other people. All our dancers will be taking part in the big show to raise funds.”

V The show is at Bergvliet High School on Saturday 2 September at 19:00. Tickets cost R80 for adults and R40 for children under 12 through Quicket, from performers or at the door.
