Now in its 16th year, Shimmyshowcase in Long Beach continues to provide a place where all dancers, regardless of proficiency, can perform in front of a warm, appreciative audience. Performers and guests alike keep returning for the temporary escape from the stress of everyday life into this relaxing and fun environment to explore and enjoy middle eastern inspired dance.

Shimmyshowcase encourages all dancers from beginners to seasoned performers to sign up and perform for us! For most up to date schedule and dancer opportunities, please email us at and we'll add you to our weekly email schedule.

NO Shimmyshowcase this Sunday—see you February 26!

February 26 – Shimmyshowcase will be taken over by the ever-popular JJ & the Habibis troupe on this night, and coordinator Saviya couldn’t be happier to host this wonderful, versatile troupe. Be sure to join us as the Habibis are sure to put on a delightfully fun program.

March 4 – Abraiha returns to coordinate another Shimmyshowcase with lovely guest dancers May, Liz, Janice and Rima.

March 10 – (that’s right—a SATURDAY!) --Shimmyshowcase celebrates its 9th anniversary with a special program featuring Shimmyshowcase coordinators, past and present! For the first time, Shimmyshowcase will be on a SATURDAY evening so we have more time to celebrate. We’re also starting a little later—around 7:00 p.m. Saviya has the lead in planning for this year’s anniversary party and already has one of Shimmyshowcase’s founders, Alexiis, on tap to perform, as well as current coordinators Draca, Ilana, Amber, and the Om Sisters. We’re also working on live music and more fabulous guest dancers, so be sure to mark your calendars so you won’t miss the opportunity to celebrate Shimmyshowcase’s reincarnation in our new home, Viento y Agua Coffee House!

March 18 – DARK –No Shimmyshowcase. Instead, we recommend you attend “Once Upon a Time: A Gypsy’s Tale” featuring Shimmyshowcase’s own Saviya with Tribe Roman Morga, Katerina & the Kabuki Dolls, JJ & the Habibis and live music by Saf Mavi at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Long Beach, 5450 East Atherton Street; Long Beach, 90815; Show time is 2:00 p.m.; for reserved seating ($15 a seat) contact Douglas Law, 562-597-8445 or

April 1 – It’s Fool’s Day and Saviya is your host for Laugh Out Loud (LOL) with Erica, Erica (yes, it’s no joke--we really have 2 Ericas!), Nova Kachina, and Isis-Siren-Sekhmet performing. One other thing we’re not fooling about is that everyone is sure to have fun at this Shimmyshowcase!
