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.
