Shimmy Showcase Sunday

February 27: Last month it was “Feathers & Fringe” and this time Saviya provides the opportunity for that and beyond as Shimmyshowcase celebrates Mardi Gras at I-Candy coffee with guest dancers Meryem Vani, Aileen, Reba and male dancer David. So don your mask and beads and share in the zany frivolity characteristic of this festive event at I-Candy Coffee!.

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! As further incentive, there is a 10% 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. We appreciate your arrival before 6:45 pm (earlier if you’re a performer!) so you can get your refreshments and grab a seat before 7:00 so we can start the showcase on time.

Below is our upcoming schedule for the next several Sundays. If you are a dancer interested in performing at an upcoming showcase, please read on to see which showcases have openings and then send an email with your preference to Shimmyshowcase@gmail.com
