September 2—NO SHIMMYSHOWCASE – Enjoy your Labor Day weekend!

September 9 – Coordinator Amber welcomes Perizad, Saahira, and Natalia to delight you with their masterful interpretations of middle eastern dance styles and introduces Tamara to the Shimmyshowcase family! These awesome performers are sure to guarantee a splendid evening of dance entertainment, so be sure you plan to join us for a wonderful Shimmyshowcase!

September 16 - Your Shimmyshowcase for this mid-September Sunday features an abundance of talent. Guest dancers Kamar, Aianna, Lydia, and Erica are sure to please you, and if that isn’t enough, we have Draca in the role of coordinator! We know this wonderful cast of performers will delight everyone who comes down to Viento y Agua, so please mark your calendars and be sure to join us.

September 23 – Mimmee La Fleur (aka Saviya) presents another popular Shimmyshowcase theme with “A Touch of Burlesque.” Think back to those days when Burlesque had its beginnings, when a glimpse of a thigh was scintillating, and shimmies scandalous. We have Dalilah, Meryem Vani, LaLa, Nova Kachina, and Sakura del Mar (aka Bella) lined up to tantalize you with their fusion of vintage burlesque and belly dancing. To avoid any misconceptions, please note the same “G-Rated” guidelines for all Shimmyshowcase programs apply to this one as well; in other words, we always welcome audience members of any age from 1 to 100!

September 30 - Ilana brings back another favorite Shimmyshowcase theme with Disco Night! If the sound of that disco beat gets you moving, this is the show for you. Dancers, please reply to this email or contact if you want to spread the dance fever on this night.

We look forward to seeing you soon at the Sunday Shimmyshowcase at Viento y Agua!
