Bellicious, a night of belly dancing ran by Astarte Mind & Body Studio raising money for victims of domestic violence.

Shellharbour belly dancer Kylie Morrison invited the community to come with her and enter a world of pure imagination at an annual show of belly dance and fusion hosted by Astarte Mind & Body Studio.

Bellicious was held at Dapto Leagues Club on May 21 and was like an imaginary journey through galaxies and forests where fairies and mermaids frolic in a fantasy where anything can happen.

The event was held to raise money for SAHSSI and to experience a variety night of belly dance.

“It has become a major fundraising event,” Ms Morrison said. Ms Morrison described it as a variety night with more than 45 performers.

“It is a full theatrical experience and you get dinner at the same time,” she said. “Working with a lot of women I wanted to do something that was specifically focused towards helping and assisting women who are in situations that are not ideal and situations of domestic violence or abuse.”
