Shimmy Showcase Sunday

Election day is nearly here, and we’re all weary of the campaigning. Escape from all that craziness into the warm, welcoming dance environment at Coffee Haven where the amazing Saviya will be joined by gorgeous cabaret dancers Yasmin and MaraLena with troupe Blossoms of the East.
