Since 2007, Shimmy Shake organises the Shimmy Shake Factor CO Talent Search. Talented fusion belly dancers (from amateurs to semi-professionals) participate in this Talent Search and perform during one of the selection days in The Netherlands. A professional panel selects, from more than 40 participants, the 12 most promising acts for a coaching program with a professional fusion belly dancer. Last but not least, these 12 selected talents will perform at the Shimmy Shake Talent Show.
This year the Shimmy Shake Talent Show is scheduled for Sunday 24 May 2015 at Maaspodium Rotterdam. Are you curious who the newest fusion belly dance talents are? Come and watch this show! Ticket Sales will be available soon.
During the Talent Show the audience can vote for their favourite dancer, who will not only win the Public Prize but will also receive a voucher for one of the worskhops during our second edition of the Shimmy Shake Festival, scheduled for November this year.
