DANCERS—we are currently full through the end of 2011 and still working on our coordinator schedule for 2012. Please stay tuned for word of dancer openings in the new year!
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!
Everyone is invited 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 in the entertainment area to enjoy some really great dancing at NO cover charge!
SHIMMY SHOWCASE begins at 5:30 p.m. at Viento y Agua Coffee House in Long Beach at 4007 East 4th Street; 562-434-1182.
Please arrive at least 15 minutes before show time (earlier if you’re a performer!), so you can first stop at the refreshment counter to get a delicious beverage, snack or sandwich; then head for the show area and grab a seat so you don’t miss any of our great performers!
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
