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.

March 10 – (that’s right—a SATURDAY!) --Shimmyshowcase celebrates its 9th anniversary with a special program featuring LIVE MUSIC by our favorite musicians—Saf Mavi! Dedicated to Shimmyshowcase coordinators past and present, our program features Saviya, Draca, and Alexiis, as well as Ilana, Amber, and Jannah of the Om Sisters. Plus we have Leon (Siraj), Kamar, and Marguerite as our special guests. This Shimmyshowcase will be so spectacular that it will take place (for the first time) on a SATURDAY evening! We’re also starting a little later—around 7:00 p.m. Be sure to join us for what we guarantee to be an awesome program in celebration of Shimmyshowcase’s reincarnation in our new home, Viento y Agua Coffee House! Arrive early so you can pick up a healthy vegetarian salad or sandwich before the first set; and we’ll treat you to some yummy cake at the break, followed by a second set of fabulous music and dancing. You won’t find such an entertainment deal anywhere else, so don’t miss this opportunity to celebrate with us!
