June 13 - The Witching Hour with Alexiis: Do you know what time it is? Is it getting late? What happens when you don't pay attention? Join Alexiis and special guests Good Witch Dance Company, Katerina, La Shonda, Ravenmoon, and Jessica to honor the tipping point from the light into the dark.
Alexiis hopes you all can come to I-Candy Coffee as she coordinates her final Shimmyshowcase. An original Shimmyshowcase founder, Alexiis has shared her many talents as artist, coordinator, website designer and administrator, and, of course, amazing dancer for seven dedicated years. Please join us on June 13 as we say farewell and best wishes to Alexiis in her future artistic endeavors.
SHIMMYSHOWCASE IS LOOKING FOR DANCERS!—On July 11 and July 25! Please see below for details (note THEME for July 11!) and contact us at Shimmyshowcase@gmail.com 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 I-CANDY COFFEE in Long Beach (1708 E. Broadway -- 562-437-3785).
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 east 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.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 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.
