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 the 3rd Saturday of the month at 6:30 p.m. at Viento y Agua Coffee House in Long Beach at 4007 East 4th Street; (562) 434-1182 


Based on the consensus of a majority of coordinators and dancers, the Shimmyshowcase March 21st Anniversary event is hereby cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic and resultant government declarations.  We thank you for your understanding and support.

At this time, plans remain in place to hold the next Shimmyshowcase, scheduled for April 18th, to be hosted by coordinator Ilana.  The theme is “Disco Shimmy!”  Hala, Christina Rizkallah, and Eliza are already practicing their disco moves, and they and Ilana would love to have more dancers join in the fun.  So if you like disco, or ever secretly wanted to give it a try, please email, and we’ll be happy to add you to the program.  We will continue to monitor the Covid-19 situation and, if necessary, update Shimmyshowcase status as we go forward.

May 16 – Amber, “Bellydance Rock”

June 20 – Raqmila, “Myths and Legends”
