Chris Curle Special To The Eagle
Marco Island merchants, take note: Here's one way to draw a crowd in this "off" season. These belly dancers just want to have fun, and to help nightspots and other merchants on 5th Avenue South to attract customers to their establishments. They performed on the sidewalk one night last week to put visitors in the mood for a good time. The troupe of dancers, named Egyptian Breeze, is led by Ray-Anne, who teaches belly dancing, including scheduled lessons at Fleishman Park. Says Ray-Anne, "Our dancing is a true, visual expression of the music, a celebration of life itself." Yeah, we get that. They say it's excellent exercise. That too.
