SHIMMY for the Nest 2016!

We were so honored to join the amazing line up of dancers donating time and talent to this year’s Shimmy for the Nest Charity show!

Every year we come together as a community and present our favorite dance- belly dance! for a good cause. The Nest is a center that helps women and children in crisis, be it big or small. Funds and proceeds go toward supplying staples like diapers and food for those who can’t get it otherwise. What a wonderful cause, and the toy drive was amazing, too!

This year we got to enjoy vintage style sets by the Arabesque troupe, including meleya leff and cane dances, as well as modern Egyptian belly dance by the always amazing Amirah! She danced to  everyone’s favorite SHIK SHAK SHOK.

Celestina did a great American Cabaret set featuring the music of the late, much adored John Bilezikjian. Filming Celestina is almost like catching footage of a rare bird. We’re so glad we caught the whole set! Here’s a snippet of Celestina doing some her signature fast cabaret!
