The Golden Navel Academy has been working hard and will once again this year be hosting a night of family fun at the Golden Seniors Centre on June 2.

Golden Navel Academy brings you to a Dance Oasis

The Golden Navel Academy is getting ready to bring an Oasis to Golden.

The Golden Navel Academy is getting prepared for the group’s third annual belly dance extravaganza on June 2 starting at 7:30 p.m., with the doors opening at 7 p.m. at the Golden Seniors  Centre.

This year the event is being called Dance Oasis and will have many local  dancers along with some other special guests.

“I am having some dancers from Edmonton, Banff and Canmore coming in for the show,” said Director of the Golden Navel Academy, Colette Cottrell.

This year the centre will be given a makeover so it will look like a cafe.

Cottrell has been dancing for the past 10 years and said this event is a great night out for both the dancers and those in attendance.

“There is always an appreciative crowd that comes out,” she said. “This is something you do not normally see in Golden. It is a chance to enjoy the mystique of the Eastern part of the world.

Cottrell went on and said, “It is a chance to see some beautiful women doing beautiful dances in beautiful costumes.”

Cottrell said the show is most definitely a family show and in the past many of the children who have attended have a special appreciation for the dresses.

“It is a celebration of women and their relationships with each other and the men in their lives. It is a chance to celebrate all that we are,” Cottrell said.

There will also be many door prizes at this year’s event which have been generously donated by local businesses. Tickets for the event will be $12 for adults and $6 for children which will include the show and snacks provided by the Big Bend Cafe, Overwaitea and Sobeys.
