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.

During 2015, SHIMMY SHOWCASE will take place on the third Saturday of each month at 7:00 p.m. at Viento y Agua Coffee House in Long Beach at 4007 East 4th Street; 562-434-1182.  


March 21 – Shimmyshowcase celebrates its 12th Anniversary with a dazzling program featuring present and former coordinators Katerina, Alexiis, Saviya, Draca, and Jannah Ilana, and Amber Ray of the Om Sisters.  Joining them will be special guest dancers Jheri St. James and Bella Noor to further entertain you with glittering costumes and gorgeous moves.  Plus, in recognition of this anniversary milestone, Shimmyshowcase will feature live drum accompaniment by the Tribe Roman Morga musicians for our grand finale!  Please plan now to attend this extra special event and perhaps--if they see enough enthusiasm from the audience--our musicians will jam a bit for some open dancing during the break!  So, mark your calendars and be sure to arrive early to purchase a tasty beverage or light snack from our generous host venue and find a seat before the show begins. 

 April 18  - Amber (Reggae) - Dancer Sign-Ups begin on March 18

May 16 – Saviya/Xandra (Once Upon a Time—A Shimmyshowcase Tale) - Dancer Sign-Ups begin on April 16—NOTE—Saviya and Xandra are trying something new and exciting with this theme—for which we are looking for dancers who can incorporate a fairy tale concept in their routine.   Concepts may come from childhood fairy tales, fables, mythology, or other variations of fantasy stories.  Dancers desiring to be part of this new theme will need to provide their concept before they will be confirmed as performers for the May 16 program.  These concepts will furnish the material that Saviya and Xandra will weave into “A Shimmyshowcase Tale!”   

June 20    Draca (Goth Night) - Dancer Sign-Ups begin on May 20

July 18 – Ilana (Movies) - Dancer Sign-Ups begin on June 18
