Shimmy Showcase Sunday

August 30: NEWSFLASH – LIVE MUSIC THIS SUNDAY! Xandra is thrilled to welcome ELAN for a return engagement! If you missed Marguerite and Rico’s debut Shimmshowcase performance two weeks ago, you DON’T want to miss this Sunday! Kamar, Samia, and Devon will bring Coffee Haven’s magic carpet to life with their movements to the amazing sound of Elan. PLUS, we just had a dancer cancel, so there is an OPENING for someone who would like to perform with these excellent musicians. If that is you, please contact us at

***ATTENTION DANCERS*** In addition to this Sunday’s last minute opening, we have openings in October! PLEASE check out the upcoming Showcase Calendar below and contact us 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

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 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!
