Shimmy Showcase Sunday

December 20: Another great Shimmyshowcase year closes out with Alexiis bringing you the always-popular Mid-Winter’s Dream Shimmyshowcase. Guest Dancers Rachel, Kalila, Sarah, and IrinaXara will express their seasonal and holiday dreams in the form of dance. Please join us for this year-end celebration of the holidays in dance!

SEEKING DANCERS--We still have openings January 10 and 17—including LIVE MUSIC with Marguerite & Rico of Elan on January 17! Please see below for program and theme details and then 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 I-CANDY COFFEE in Long Beach (1708 E. Broadway -- 562-437-3785).

Below is our upcoming schedule for the next several Sundays at the I-Candy Coffee 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.


December 27: DARK

January 3: DARK (Happy New Year!)

January 10: As the new year gets underway, and the cheerful goodwill of the recently ended holiday season fades, Shimmyshowcase returns to I-Candy Coffee with an apropos theme-- Post Holiday Blues! Coordinator Saviya and guest dancers MariaElena and Meryem Vani will enthrall with their creative coupling of Blues music to bellydancing. We still have openings for dancers who would like to perform for this evening. Please contact us at if you’d like a performance spot!

January 17: Xandra is excited because Elan returns to I-Candy Coffee for our first Shimmyshowcase of 2010 with LIVE MUSIC! Rico & Marguerite of Elan will delight both dancers and audience alike with their exquisitely played and sung arrangements of middle eastern music, interspersed with some blues and standards during the breaks. Jilly, Saphira, and Gaea are featured dancers, and we are looking for one more dancer who would like to perform with Elan. If that would be you, please contact us at for a performance spot!

January 24: Coordinator Abraiha presents guest dancers May, Ana, Constance, Akiko, and Nazi from Dance Garden.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Please allow time for parking to avoid missing any of the fun. Since street parking around I-Candy Coffee is scarce, we recommend you try the perimeter of Bixby park located two blocks west of I-Candy Coffee 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!
