Shimmy Shake - The Next Level
Talent coaching for the more experienced Fusion Belly Dancers
Since last year autumn we have started The Next Level Talent Coaching for a selected number of dancers. Once selected you will be assigned to one or more coaches. They will help your act and you as a dancer and work with your choreography to bring your idea more to the surface, to clean your movements or help you to master a particular style that you are using. Your work will be improved and you will be more professional in your approach.
The selected and coached Next Level dance acts will be presented as part of the Urban Fusion Gala Show at the Shimmy Shake Festival on Saturday 14 November 2015. Furthermore Next Level dancers will become part of our pool that can be programmed in shows in various situations including on tour.
Are you a more experienced dancer, are you one of the Shimmy Shake regulars?
Do you have a dance act that you want to improve?
Do you want to master a particular fusion style?
Then sign up for The Next Level!
Applying for The Next level does not automatically imply that you may participate. The particpants will be chosen on the basis of their motivation and what they hope to accomplish with this coaching, and the potential of their choreography as seen on the clip.

(Registration starts Monday 17 August 2015 - Closing Date is Thursday 1 October 2015)

Call to all dancers in Rotterdam and surroundings
Fusion Dancers from all corners of Holland and Europe will be visiting the coming Shimmy Shake Festival. Because we want to stimulate the exchange between fusion dancers from different parts of the world, we would like to give visitors from outside of Rotterdam the chance to get to know dancers from Rotterdam a bit better by staying with them during the festival.
Therefore we would like to put together a list of available houses of dancers living in Rotterdam and surroundings, where other dancers, from outside of Rotterdam, can stay the night or nights.
Is your house / apartment big enough to host one (or more) dancers? Would you like to buddy up with another dancer? Then welcome someone, who is also passionate about fusion dance, to stay at your place and enjoy the Shimmy Shake Festival together!
Please send an e-mail to email@example.com with the following details:
- Full Name, Address, Postal Code, City, Telephone Number
- A short personal profile
- A short description of your house
Once listed, we will send the list of all available places to those who need accommodation during the festival, then they will contact you directly for further information.
For more information about the listing, please contact Olga van Reede (firstname.lastname@example.org)
