SHIMMY SHOWCASE takes place on one Saturday each month at 6:30 p.m. at Viento y Agua Coffee House in Long Beach, CA at 4007 East 4th Street; 562-434-1182.  


June 24 –  This Saturday Shimmyshowcase features coordinator Ilana and guest dancers Nadia, Bella, Adora, Tamara, Rogue Moon, Draca, and Christina & Audrey performing to mellow Reggae rhythms and the contrasting high energy of Hip Hop.  We know that this combination of great music and great dancing is sure to produce an extraordinary program which you won’t want to miss!  So be sure to join us at Viento y Agua and be part of this experience!


Just a short three weeks later on July 15 Draca, Shimmyshowcase’s Mistress of the Dark, will make her annual journey to the Gothic world.   Tiger Lily, Galadriel, Devon, and Meryem Vani will enhance this journey with exquisite performances to create an evening of Gothic magic.    We still have room for other souls who would venture into this alternative belly dance world, so please email us at if you would like to perform!
