Shimmy Mob 2018

ShimmyMob is an event where many dancers and bellydance enthusiasts gather to perform a specific choreography that is shared among dancers virtually and then done in 3D or live in designated places around the globe. This year we are supporting Valencia, a local dancer, who is organizing Shimmy Mob in Dekalb County. This is particularly exciting because we’ve always wanted to join in and here we are with a group that we really enjoy hanging out with at shows.

In the past ten years there have been a number of shimmy themed events that raise money and or awareness to various causes. In years past we had representatives at Shimmy-a-thon, a fundraiser where people shimmied for a length of time to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis. There’ve been many other ways in which the art of Raqs Sharqi brought people together for the greater good.

MissBellydance.com will be holding a drawing for Shimmy Mob participants. Anyone who shows up and participates on Valencia’s team will be entered to win a set of hipscarves from our online store – a total value of $85. We’re looking at other teams to assist and help this year as well as looking to attend more events where there is a community focus and a giving component. We love to help out where we can.

Long zaghareets to Valencia and her team – we hope to see others follow suit!
