July 8 - Saviya returns with those lovely belly dancers from Laguna Beach, JJ & the Habibis! These ladies always put on a great show, which you won’t want to miss, so come join your friends at Viento y Agua, grab one of their delicious beverages or food items, and find yourself a great spot from which to enjoy the show.
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 on most Sundays at 5:30 p.m. at Viento y Agua Coffee House in Long Beach at 4007 East 4th Street; 562-434-1182. Please refer to the detailed schedule below for more information about upcoming showcases and performance opportunities.
Please arrive at least 15 minutes before show time (30 min if you’re a performer!), so you can 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!
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: Viento y Agua is planning some upgrades to occur within the next few weeks to months. During that time, there is a possibility that they might have to close for a few days. At this time we don’t know when or if this will impact Shimmyshowcase, however, should it happen that this closure involves a Sunday, there is a possibility that we might have to cancel a Shimmyshowcase. I have spoken to the owner and asked him to let me know as soon as he has any further information about possible Viento y Agua closure. While we certainly hope that Shimmyshowcase will go on as planned, should it be necessary to cancel a showcase, I will send out a broad notice to this distribution as well as to all scheduled dancers and coordinator for the affected program to inform everyone. Thank you for your support! ~ Xandra
Below is our upcoming schedule for the next several weeks. If you are a dancer interested in performing at an upcoming showcase, please read on to see where we have openings and send an email with your preference to Shimmyshowcase@gmail.com
