Now in its 17th 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.

We hope to see you soon at Shimmyshowcase at Viento y Agua Coffee House! For more info about Viento y Agua, go to

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.  


This week Viento y Agua told us that they will be closing earlier on Saturdays beginning in November and will no longer be able to accommodate Shimmyshowcase on Saturday evenings.  However, our October program will go on as scheduled.

We have proposed an alternate time for our November and December 2017 showcases, but have not received a response yet.  We are also seeking a new venue for Shimmyshowcase beginning in 2018.  We will keep you apprised of any developments regarding Shimmyshowcase’s future. 

In the meantime, we hope that everyone in the Shimmyshowcase family will join us for Ilana’s “Shivershowcase” on October 21, which will go on as scheduled at 6:30 p.m.  Her cast of ghostly dancers in the form of Amber, Jannah, Suzanna, Christina Rizkallah, Meryem Vani, Vanina, Musa, Darcy & Karla, and the Om Sisters  won’t scare you to death but will delight you with their scintillating moves.  We encourage everyone to come in your favorite scary costume to make this special event even more fun!
