Apr 29: Furry Friends Rescue Hafla – Special Event

This week, we are hosting a fundraiser for Furry Friends Rescue (a local no-kill animal rescue). The night will be filled with performances by our resident and Special Guest dancers, all coming together for a loving cause.

NOTE: We will be starting early. First performance set will be at 9:30pm, followed by live music by Near East Bay. The 2nd performance set will flow into an open dancefloor with F8’s own DJ Rafael.

Performances by Wendy Allen, FatChanceBellyDance, Satinka, Parya, Marci Ann + Yvonne Michelle, Calamity Sam, Little Beasties and Jennifer Faust. Your hostess / MC for the night is Tatyana. Mixing your cocktails is our wonderful Underground Nomads bartender Demitria.

In addition to 2 sets of performances, live music and dancefloor DJ sets, we will have gluten free treats by Millie Maddox (the Belly Dancing Baker), Grits Pies by Stephanie Fields (Sugarfoot Grits), a silent art auction featuring an original painting by Jenna Bowles, jewelry and more.

Meet your Hostess and coordinator of this special night, Tatyana
Wendy has always had an urge to express herself artistically, but couldn't find a way until she found her home in American Tribal Style belly dance. She has been part of the  FCBD family for 17 years, has been a member of the professional troupe for 13 of those  years, and a teacher for 11. She has had the pleasure of teaching both domestically and  internationally. She has a deep passion for and commitment to the integrity of the  dance form, and loves to share that passion with her students.
