Katarina's Belly Dance Benefit - 04-04-08 - Local Events

Madrone Hospice Belly Dance Benefit

NOTE: Zarifa's is not organizing or hosting this event but plans to attend.

Katarina Fontanoza has assembled a wide range of dance talents from Southern Oregon and Northern California for a dance show to benefit the Madrone Hospice in Yreka, California.

You may recognize Kat as one of the dancers at Zarifa's Community Dance, held monthly in Grants Pass. Katarina adds her own special style to the Community Dance, incorporating tribal fusion with both belly dance and modern dance. As part of her senior project, Kat has organized the Belly Dance Benefit for the Madrone Hospice to be held at the Yreka High School Union, April 4, 7:30 PM, in Yreka, California.

Although a hospice is a special care facility for the terminally ill, the services extend not only to the patient but also provide ongoing support for family and friends, as well as other community services. Like most independent care facilities, the six-bed Madrone Hospice survives on federal and local funding, which is barely enough to support expenses. Costs are supplemented by community donations and support. Visit the Madrone Hospice Web Site for more information.

Besides talented belly dance acts from Southern Oregon and Northern California, activities at the benefit will include live drumming, Henna art by Leiha, and open dancing after the show.

Among the dancers will be Robyn, Shasta Belly, Maia, Zarifa, Darby, Devi Safir, Circus Tribal, Mariana, Julie Mayasaki, Susan, and Katarina.

ADMISSION to the Madrone Hospice Belly Dance Benefit is FREE but donations are encouraged and appreciated. More information and flyer available in the Southern Oregon Talent Tribe on Tribes.net.
