Shimmy Showcase Sunday

December 18 – Saviya hosts our final Shimmyshowcase of 2011 and celebrates the holidays and her birthday with a perfect theme – “Presents.” Jeweled, feathered, furred, silky and decadent gifts, wonderful surprises wrapped up with a big satin bow! Join Saviya on her special day and be gifted by the incredibly creative and talented dancing of Raks Bahlam, Kamar, Anastasia, Draca, Ibn Fadlan (aka Richie) and Ilana. We hope you will come to Viento y Agua to help Shimmyshowcase’s favorite Sagittarius celebrate her special day and end our Shimmyshowcase year on a grand note. Please be sure to come early and stop at Viento y Agua’s counter to grab a healthy light dinner and beverage so you don’t miss any of the show. Following the performances, there will be tasty cupcakes for all to enjoy!

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.

Note—N405-W22 (7th St) transition is closed for construction, so for those coming from the south, the best way is to exit the 405 at Westminster as the detour indicates. Then take Westminster through the PCH intersection until it turns into 2nd street. Take the first right immediately after the bridge and an immediate left. That street will turn into 4th and Viento Y Aqua will be on the right.

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
