Shimmy Showcase Sunday

February 28 – Saviya, coordinator for this showcase, welcomes Kamar, Reina, and Ana to I-Candy Coffee’s magic carpet. These four very talented dancers are a delight to watch, so be sure to come join us for a show that will definitely entertain you.

WE HAVE OPENINGS FOR DANCERS!—On March 28 PLUS another “Live Music” showcase on April 11 with Elan. Please see below for details on these showcases and contact us at if you would 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! If that isn’t incentive enough, there is even a 20% off coupon below good on any I-Candy food or beverage on Shimmyshowcase nights!

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.


March 7 – Abraiha is your coordinator, and she welcomes Melaina, Samia, Tahma and Meredith with Beach Bellies to Shimmyshowcase to perform for you!

March 14 – Saviya brings you Hard Rock Chicks with Reina,, Deborah, Kalila, Gaea, and Saphira mixing some rock’in and roll’in with those shimmies! There’s no telling what this ensemble will cook up for this fun theme, so be sure to come down to I-Candy for a Shimmyshowcase that’s sure to please!

March 21 – Mark your calendars for Shimmyshowcase’s annual Anniversary Party! Xandra is assembling a super showcase with performances by current and past Shimmyshowcase coordinators including Alexiis, Saviya, Abraiha, and Kashmir, --plus a featured dance performance by Marguerite—whom many of you have seen this past year playing and singing with Elan at Shimmyshowcase. To celebrate our SEVENTH anniversary, we’ll have some munchies and of course great dancing, so be sure to join us on this special night!

March 28 – Alexiis will be hosting this Shimmy Showcase, and she seeks dancers who would like to perform. If you would like to dance at I-Candy on this fine Spring evening, please contact us at for a performance spot!

April 4—DARK ** Happy Easter!

April 11 - Saviya will be coordinating this special performance featuring LIVE MUSIC once again with an I-Candy favorite—the extraordinary musicians of Elan! We already have the talented Kamar lined up to perform to the music of Marguerite, Rico and possibly Maurice and invite other dancers who would like to perform in this special live music program. If you would like the opportunity to dance to these masters of middle eastern music, then please contact us at

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