In 2016 it was the first time that we host the Shimmy Shake Talent Carnival!

A day full of fun, nice gatherings and dancing with a lovely bazaar with all kinds of stands of dance schools, dance goodies and delicious snacks and drinks. Free dance demonstrations and belly dance workshop for kids in the foyer of the theatre. Workshops for dancers and/or dance school owners in basic choreography, all you need to know about performing in a theatre, and how do you promote yourself or your dance school.

The day ended with the Shimmy Shake Talent Show where the 12 dance acts of Factor CO performed their coached and fine-tuned choreography. Also some of the coaches, including Tjarda van Straten, Esther Nederpelt, Vleer and Holy Pie were present on the stage with their own dance.
