There is nothing like the joy of dance. Whether it be the perfection of ballet, the energy of zumba or the vibrant colour of bellydance, dancing is good for the soul.
Meet the Firelights Belly Dance Troupe and one of its members, Allison Townsend, who has branched out after many years of bellydance to offer instructional programs in Campbellford.
This short clip shares some great excerpts from my interview
with Allison on Sound Waves with Susan, CKOL 93.7 fm, 2016.

"The Firelights Belly Dance Troupe is part of a robust belly dance community in Northumberland Quinte West, Ontario.
The Firelights are based in Campbellford, Ontario, Canada with members from Campbellford, Warkworth, Springbrook, Hastings, Trent River and Brighton. We have performed at numerous events since 2008 and we enjoy dancing for audiences large & small.
The Firelights show that belly dancing is for women of all ages and shapes. We delight in sharing our passion for dancing and costumes with audiences at fund-raisers, farmer's markets, festivals and private functions. When invited to perform, a number of genres of music are featured including Country & Western, Pop, and Middle-Eastern music. The audience-participation activity is a popular segment for young and old, with lots of laughter."
Allison began offering beginner bellydance programs in Campbellford last year.
