Shimmy Showcase Sunday

ANNOUNCEMENT: We regret to inform you that, due to unforeseen circumstances, Ansuz will not be able to play for the August 30 and September 20 Shimmyshowcases. However, we have some great dancers PERFORMING FOR both these nights, SO WE HOPE YOU’lL COME JOIN IN THE FUN AT COFFEE HAVEN.


***ATTENTION DANCERS*** September 27 theme showcase—“Fringe & Feathers” has openings for dancers! PLEASE contact us at if you’d like to perform!

Everyone is invited to this cozy haven for a relaxing evening among friends. Select your favorite beverage, hot or cold, from an assortment of coffees, teas, smoothies or juice; add to that a tasty sandwich or pastry; and then seat yourself alongside our magic carpet to enjoy some really great dancing at NO cover charge!

The SHIMMY SHOWCASE begins at 7 p.m. at the COFFEE HAVEN in Long Beach (1708 E. Broadway -- 562-437-3785).

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
with the dates on which you'd like to perform.


August 30: Xandra is delighted to welcome the always exquisite and delightful Kamar, Samia, Devon, and Jennelah to bring Coffee Haven’s magic carpet to life with their movement and rhythm. We hope you’ll join us for this last August Shimmyshowcase before the “unofficial” end of summer, for next weekend we’ll take a break!

September 6: DARK (Labor Day weekend)

September 13: Shimmyshowcase coordinator Abraiha welcomes May and Ana and newcomers Constance, Sabrina Moyes, and Nazi to Coffee Haven’s magic carpet.

September 20: Alexiis will be your coordinator for another relaxing Shimmyshowcase evening. She welcomes guest dancers Saphira, Gaea, Kalila, Ilana, and Yasmin. Come on down to Coffee Haven and let this illustrious group of performers entertain you!

September 27: “Fringe and feathers” is the theme for this Shimmyshowcase. If you are a fan of vaudeville, old fashioned burlesque and love glam and glitter, this is the show for you! Our creative coordinator Saviya will be joined by Maria Elena and the Om Sisters. If you are a dancer who delights in wearing rhinestones and feathers and dabbling in burlesque (tastefully with an eye to our family oriented audience of course!), please contact us at for a performance spot.

October 4: Shimmyshowcase founder Alexiis presents her students for this special evening of American Tribal Style (ATS) dancing at Coffee Haven. They welcome you to their annual student recital night at Shimmyshowcase.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Please allow time for parking to avoid missing any of the fun. Since street parking around Coffee Haven is scarce, we recommend you try the perimeter of the park located two blocks west of Coffee Haven at Broadway and Cherry. Please try to arrive before 7:00 PM (earlier if you’re a performer!) as we try not to start the show until everyone has settled with a tasty beverage.

We look forward to seeing you soon at the Sunday Shimmyshowcase!
