St. Augustine Belly Dance Performs @ Charity Event

Casa de Solana B&B is proud to host the ladies from St. Augustine Belly Dance on Saturday, December 8, 2012, from 1 to 5 pm. The dancers will perform to Christmas songs in the courtyard during the 19th Annual Bed & Breakfast Holiday Tour, the theme of which is Twelve Days of Christmas. Each B&B was assigned a verse for which to bring theatrics; “Nine Ladies Dancing” will be brought to life at Casa by the Belly Dancers!

Tracy lives in East Palatka and is a married mom of two. She has been taking bellydance lessons for one year. She has always loved to watch bellydance but never had time to pursue it while her children were younger. Now that they are grown, she connected with her instructor, Liz Rizzolo, and has loved every minute of it!

Dana is a full-blooded Floridian and a 24-year resident of beautiful St. Augustine. She has been taking bellydance lessons for a little more than a year with her instructor, Liz Rizzolo. She enjoys bellydance because it allows for both enjoyment and exercise, as well as a euphoric feeling!

Marie has been living in Florida for 26 years. She is the mother of two active boys. She has studied various styles of dance for the better part of her life. She has always been intrigued by the art of bellydance and started training with instructor Liz Rizzolo about six months ago. She enjoys the full body workout that bellydance provides!

Liz is the artistic director of St. Augustine Bellydance. Dancing since the age of nine, Liz enjoys both performing and teaching bellydance to women of all ages. A New Jersey native, Liz has lived in Florida for 18 years. She is the mom of a six-year-old daughter and a high school teacher in St. Johns County.

Tour guests will be invited to vote for their favorite belly dancer by way of a tip jar for each individual dancer. The winning belly dancer will receive a fabulous massage at their residence (or their place of choice) compliments of Casa de Solana, provided by Kelly McCormack of Bodyworks by Kelly! The dancers will donate the proceeds from their tip jars to the B&B Tour’s charity, the Fresh Start (Culinary) Program at First Coast Technical Institute.

They provide custom entertainment packages to create one-of-a-kind performances for any event. The dancers utilize a variety of dance styles, techniques, and props to create special memories that will last a lifetime!
