Shimmy Showcase in Long Beach Aug. 17

August  17 – Calling all bellydance rockers!   Ilana  andAmber return to coordinate another Shimmyshowcase favorite -  “Rock a Belly!”   IrinaXara, Alexiis, Shalimar,Elissa, Van, Rebekah, Pixie, Azira, Tahira,  and the Om Sisters are ready to shake, rattle, and roll (and shimmy of course) with them!    These wonderful dancers will surely rock your soul, so be sure to mark your calendars and join us for another great Saturday evening at Shimmyshowcase!  

IMPORTANT NOTE:  Please be aware that the O.C.’s version of “Carmagedden” will take place next Shimmyshowcase weekend, with the entire 405 freeway being shut down at Valley View!  If you plan to brave the traffic to attend “Rock a Belly,” kudos to you—and please allow additional time for the expected traffic so you don’t miss a minute of this exciting Shimmyshowcase.

Also, Abraiha found a CD—“Niyaz Galactic BD Rhythm of the Dance” that isn’t hers.  If any of you who has danced at one of Abraiha’s showcases thinks it might be yours, please contact her at

SHIMMY SHOWCASE takes place on the 3rd Saturday of the month at 7:00 p.m. at Viento y Agua Coffee House in Long Beach at 4007 East 4th Street; 562-434-1182.   Remember—there’s never a cover charge, but we encourage you to arrive early so you can purchase a tasty treat or beverage from our host venue before settling down to watch the show.
