VARIETY DANCE: Delphine Grundy will perform alongside dance veteran Monique Feron at the Red Theme Harem fundraiser.

Reading about a spate of break-ins at the Greenhithe Pony Club in the North Shore Times has prompted a Birkenhead choreographer to throw a fundraiser for the club.

Monique Feron will host a variety show featuring a bevy of local talent to raise money.

Ms Feron, who runs the Abraccia School of Dance, saw first-hand the effects the mid-October thefts had on club members.

"I know two little girls Sophia and Ella Newth who had $7000 worth of gear stolen, they were heartbroken," she says.

Club spokeswoman Carrie Walker says more than $10,000 of gear including saddles and nutritional supplements was stolen from the club that night.

Local businesses have donated items for the club's own fundraising raffle on November 30, she says.

Ms Walker thinks it is "fantastic" that Ms Feron is keen to help.

Ms Feron says instead of "seeing red over the pony club disaster", she wants women to get their red dresses on and bring their partners along to the Red Theme Harem Night.

Her show will feature belly-dancing, burlesque and Bollywood dance.

Phone 419 7369 or email monique@bellydance.net.nz. Tickets are $35.
