Shimmy Showcase Sunday

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!

SHIMMY SHOWCASE at I-Candy Coffee begins at 6:00 p.m. I-Candy is located in Long Beach at 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 15 minutes before show time (earlier if you’re a performer!) so you can get your refreshments and grab a seat and allow us to begin promptly at the scheduled 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
