Shimmy Showcase Sunday

Shimmyshowcase has become the place to be in Long Beach on Sunday nights in 2009 as we had GREAT shows and wonderful audiences for the entire month of January. Saviya is getting February off to a great start with the always fun dancing of Saphira, Kalila and Gaea. Come to Coffee Haven and let the magic of their dance lift your spirits and offer your mind a respite from the anxiety of these troubled times.


Everyone is invited to come out, have a cup of Java, munch on something yummy and enjoy some really great dancing FOR FREE!

Below is our upcoming schedule for the next several Sundays at the Coffee Haven in Long Beach. If you are a dancer interested in performing at an upcoming showcase, please check out the schedule below for open dates and then email us at
