SEASHELL TRUST ARABIAN BALL

Seashell Trust – Arabian Nights Summer Ball – 2015

The Seashell Trust, based in Cheadle Hulme, held an evening of fundraising and entertainment, in 2015, with the theme being an Arabian Nights Summer Ball. Guests were greeted by a glamorous Belly dancer from Ri Ri’s Dance Academy, who was beautifully dressed in a gilt costume adorned with pretty jewels. Our Belly dancer brought the party to life by performing two twenty minute energetic yet elegant Belly dancing routines, with a cheeky costume change in between.  

A number of props were combined into the Belly dancing performances, such as a sword and huge, spectacular isis wings which almost covered the entire dance floor!

Interactive Belly Dancing Workshop

The Belly dancing workshop, interacting many of the guests, was a huge success and lifted the atmosphere of the Event, bringing smiles and laughter to those on the dance floor and, also, those watching!

It is an honour for Ri Ri’s Dance Academy to be supporting the Seashell Trust after many years of working together.

Her Majesty, The Queen, is the patron of the Seashell Trust Charity, who raised an amazing £44,000 on the evening of the Arabian Nights Summer Ball.
