The Red Cross Pre-Carnaval Dance – For Women Only! is one of the annual social events that all the Merida ladies look forward to. The clubs and community service groups of the city get together and put on a fund raising show for one another. The Red Cross supports the Cancer Clinic in town, so as well as being lots of fun – the dance is a great way to help the community
The groups of dancing women are of all shapes, sizes and dance ability. The International Women’s Club has participated many times, especially the year that one of our members Liza Johansson was chosen as the Queen. Our group has always integrated well with the local ladies. We were the hit of the fiesta the year we came dressed as aging beauty queens and did a dance routine to “Foxy Lady”
This year the dance will be held on Wednesday January 16th at the Club Campestre. The doors will open at 1:00 pm – the band will be playing and the ladies will be shaking it up on the dance floor. About 3:00 pm the show should get underway.
The IWC has a special table at the Red Cross dance – all Ladies are invited to join us! You’ll have a chance to mingle with the Yucatecans and show’em that the international babes can boogey with the best of ‘em. If you’d like a seat at our table, leave me a comment and I’ll forward it to the dance organizer. These are pictures of a former dance extravaganza. Click on them to enlarge
