~~ UPCOMING SHIMMYSHOWCASE EVENTS ~~
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.
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
