~~ 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 plus special guest dancers Jheri St. James and Bella Noor. And that’s not all! This anniversary Shimmyshowcase will include live drum accompaniment by the Tribe Roman Morga musicians in 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—ALL 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. (Note—zoological concepts (i.e. animal characters) are encouraged!) To help plan for this event, any dancer who is interested in this program, and believes she/he can provide their concept by the April 16 sign-up date may reply to this message before April 16 to let Xandra know of your interest. I will provide tentative acceptance or wait-list status beforehand, which will be confirmed on or shortly after April 16 only for dancers who provide their fairy tale concepts by that time. Your 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
