The New Horizons Belly Dance troupe will be performing on the main stage at 1:30 pm. There will be a solo performance with Luna and Daisy the Snake at 1:50 pm, followed by a performance at the Waverly at 2:30.
Mz B Haven
Angie Mz Behaven will be performing at the Cumberland Hotel from 1:15 to 1:45 pm on Saturday, Aug 8th.
Mz B Haven certainly lives up to her name from her devious red lips to her voluptuous hips. Born as a double fire sign this 80's inspired diva has heated up many a stage with her ultra-red presence, fluid movements and a voice that can wake the dead. That being said, she oddly enough has a thing for zombies...brains anyone?!
A woman of naughty and nice proportions (perhaps a little more of the former), this firecracker was born and bred in the Comox Valley in Black Creek. She exploded onto the burlesque scene in October 2008 with the Cheesecake Burlesque Revue from Victoria and hasn't looked back. She moved to Vancouver 2 1/2 years ago and has been producing her own monthly burlesque show in East Vancouver at Falconetti's, Babes of Burlesque. She has performed all over Vancouver Island and throughout BC, and in San Francisco for Pride Week. She is pleased to utilize her many talents from dancing with fire to singing to puppetry, never forgetting her island roots and gypsy spirit.
She brings an edge to the world of burlesque delving in for a nibble of the dark side while indulging her inner child and is always up for a little "misbehavin".
VanCity Stunters Motorcycle Stunt Team

They will be giving away an armour-plated sport bike riding jacket in their first and second shows.
