Shimmy Showcase Sunday

May 29 -- Join us for the Greatest Shimmyshowcase on Earth with “Under the Big Top.” Ringmaster Saviya leads a sensational lineup featuring amazing animal acts, daring tightrope feats, and freaky side shows—all interpreted through dance of course by Nova Kachina, Bella, Anastasia, Aileen, Shantas, and Rosé.

Our dancers have been working hard polishing their acts; however their greatest act will be donating their tips to “A Place Called Home,” (, a safe haven in South Central Los Angeles where underserved youth are empowered to take ownership of the quality and direction of their lives through programs in education, arts, and well-being; and are inspired to make a meaningful difference in their community and the world.

You don’t want to miss the Circus fun, so please join us this holiday weekend at I-Candy where you can dine on a reasonably priced meal, enjoy a stupendous show, experience great camaraderie among our friendly dance community, and, as if that isn’t enough, donate to a worthy cause. This is a show that is guaranteed to please all! AND DON’T FORGET –we begin at 6:00 pm!

Note—N405-W22 (7th St) transition is closed for construction, so folks who normally take that route please take note and allow enough time for an alternate route!

Calling All Dancers—We have dancer openings June 26 and July 10. Please read below for details and contact us at if you’d like to perform.
