August 14 -- Your coordinator for this Shimmyshowcase is the lovely Abraiha who welcomes Nadirah, Masa, and Paquita to I-Candy’s magic carpet. Please be sure to join us on this August 14 evening for another wonderful evening of bellydancing and camaraderie because next Sunday we’re taking a break!
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!
DANCERS—we have openings for some great THEME NIGHTS Please read below for details and contact us at Shimmyshowcase@gmail.com if you’d 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!
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 Shimmyshowcase@gmail.com
