Different Drummer Belly Dancers

We All Dance To A Different Drummer



















Different Drummer Belly Dancers mixes traditional belly dancing and modern music, borrowing from Folkloric, Cabaret, American Tribal, and Fusion styles of belly dance. We believe the power, beauty, joy, and grace of belly dance can be expressed in our modern 20th and 21st century music. Plus audiences love it!

CASAblanca logoNovember 1, 2014 - CASAblanca - Liberty Ballroom in Bloomington - 2100 Liberty Drive, Bloomington, Indiana -  Bloomington's Premier Fundraiser and Casino Experience. Tonight we dance for CASA!

CASAblanca is an evening to celebrate and support Monroe County Court Appointed Special Advocates. CASAblanca is a Moroccan inspired evening to include casino gaming (entertainment only), light Moroccan food, signature cocktails, music, dancing and other fun activities. Dressing in character (Moroccan or movie-wise) is strongly encouraged! Of all the gin joints, in all the towns, in all the world we want YOU to step into ours!

Join us in creating our vision of a community in which every child thrives in a safe, permanent home.

Monroe County CASA is a volunteer-powered program which provides representation in juvenile court for child victims of physical abuse, sexual abuse, and neglect.

The program recruits, screens, trains, and supervises adult community members who volunteer their time to serve as Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs), with full legal authority set forth by the State of Indiana.

CASAs provide advocacy to child victims to ensure that they remain at the forefront of the court proceedings and find a safe, permanent home as quickly as possible.

This fundraiser will help keep CASA going! We can't wait to get our shimmy on for this great cause!
