UPCOMING SHOWCASE CALENDAR AND DANCER OPPORTUNITIES
SUNDAY SHIMMY SHOWCASE takes place at Viento y Agua Coffee House in Long Beach at 4007 East 4th Street; 562-434-1182. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ May 5 (Saturday) - Shimmyshowcase presents a special Saturday evening program as Viento y Agua goes back to the Victorian era with Saviya presenting a Vaudvillian/Victorian inspired belly dancing program with guest dancers Anastasia, Rebekah, Belly Muñeca, Bella, Sarah al Nour, and fellow Showcase coordinator Draca. Our very special guest artist and friend DeAnna Cameron, inspiration for this showcase, will read from her latest vaudeville-themed novel set in the Victorian era and will be autographing copies of her new book during the break where you may be further entertained by a surprise roving musician! We encourage everyone—guests and performers--to set the mood by wearing Victorian (including steampunk) costumes. Prizes will be awarded for the best ones!
