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

UPCOMING SHOWCASE CALENDAR
September 12 –A special welcome back after the Labor Day Holiday, Xandra is thrilled to have Marguerite and Rico bringing you Live Music as Elan. She’s also happy that Saphira, Kalila, Gaea, and Kamar will be returning to dance at this Shimmyshowcase. It’s a special treat to have Live music and dancing by such accomplished musicians and dancers, so please come down to I-Candy for an evening sure to delight and entertain.
September 19 - It’s Reggae night at Shimmyshowcase and Amber of the Om Sisters already has Bella, Mandi, Ilana, and Meredith lined up to mellow the magic carpet at I-Candy. This should be the perfect Shimmyshowcase for those seeking respite from the many stresses life brings these days, where you can relax with a nice cup of tea, specialty beverage or tasty desert and enjoy fine dancing to a reggae beat (but please leave the ganja at home!).
September 26 – Saviya coordinates yet another great theme night for Shimmyshowcase. This time we go back to the 60’s! That’s right, it’s another nostalgia-themed showcase highlighting one of the most eventful decades of the 20th century. Delilah, Ally, Reba, and Masa will be performing their own unique interpretations of bellydancing to this retro theme. If you would like to escape the 21st century for one evening and take a trip back in the 60’s, please join us at I-Candy coffee!
October 3 – Jannah from the Om Sisters presents a Shimmyshowcase night at the movies! This fun theme is so popular that our performer slate is already full with guest dancers Najma, Taliee, and Azira eager to dance their favorite movie themes for your enjoyment. Please come down and join in the fun!
October 10 – Special Shimmyshowcase event at special (5:00 pm) time! Guest coordinator Katerina presents Sufi Style Zikr with live music by Saf Mavi. Dhikr, otherwise spelt Zikr or Zikar, is literally "remembering". It is the religious ceremony or act of devotion practiced by the various Sufi orders. Universal Sufi Dhikr differs from the Islamic form of Dhikr, widening the scope of the term to encompass remembrance of the spiritual in all forms. Come join us for a moving music and dance experience -- starting earlier than usual at 5:00 PM.
October 17 - Saviya is still working on another special theme night for this Shimmyshowcase which will be revealed next week!
October 24 - Double double toil and trouble—With Halloween around the corner, and the Om Sisters in charge of this Shimmyshowcase, you know it’s going to be good! They’re still cooking the theme, but it’s sure to be a thrill. If you want to play your dance tricks on our magic carpet, shoot us an email at Shimmyshowcase@gmail.com and we’ll scare you up a performance spot.
October 31 – DARK (No Shimmyshowcase this Sunday—enjoy your Halloween!)
