WHEN the Cabaret Cave in Yanchep National Park hosts the Yanchep Ball on Saturday, October 14 there will be a lot of shimmying going on.

This year the organisers of the ball have decide on an Arabian Night theme so the cave is sure to be full of bright and colourful costumes and some Middle Eastern dance music.

There will also be a special performance by Karimah from Bellydance Bombshells, who has been dancing since she was seven-years-old.

Karimah is a professional dancer and has performed at the Cabaret Cave before.

“I love dancing because it’s my way of expressing my feelings, I lead with my heart, I let go of any troubles and it makes me happy,’’ she said.

“It’s been my passion all my life.’’

There is bound to be lots of noise and laughter too as Yanchep emcee Dene Ashfield tries to get everyone to increase their bids on the auction items, which will be displayed near the cave walls.

Scott and Lisa Gardiner from Entyce Entertainment will be there to entertain the guests.

The photography will be by freelancer Sara Turner.

Organiser Heather Jarvis said so far they had received donations from family and friends and work colleagues, Bunnings, Pickled Herring, Serena’s Beauty & Pamper Service in Yanchep, Two Rocks Pharmacy and House Kitchen Shop in Ocean Keys.

“We raised $7500 last year so it would be good to match it this year,’’ she said.

She said the cave was a great place for the ball as not many people could boast they had been to an event in a cave.

“Thank you to all the attendees and sponsors from previous years and hopefully they will have as much fun this year,’’ she said.

The Yanchep Ball raises money for Telethon.
