Pop-up performances

Shimmy Shake co-operates with Tribal Fusion and Bellydance schools all throughout the Netherlands. We love to organize days where we get together and dance in a studio, on the street or in a park, or at an event! Any number of dancers join in these joyous dance moments.

We call these ‘Pop-Up’ performances as they can be danced at any time of the day in a variety of locations. Any of the dance acts from the wide repertoire of our dancers can be performed. Or we can make something to match the occasion!

Pop-UP performances can be used to celebrate the start of a festival, or during, to liven up the public, or at the end for a spectacle! We can dance in front of a shop for publicity. We can perform on the stage, or in the public to get everyone dancing together. We have a range of Tribal styles and also belly dancers. Styles can include ATS which can look very like gypsy dance, Tribal Fusion – a dance for one or more with modern costumes that often include ethnic references, Dark Fusion where the look is tough and the music to match, serene or poetic dance…. We have it all.

We also often work together with the Dutch Tribal Collective – a joining up of 3 dance tribes – from Rotterdam, Amsterdam, and the Hague, who perform ATS in large groups with fabulous costumes and clashing finger cymbals! Very joyous and colorful!

Dancers who join in the Talent Search become automatically eligible to be part of the Pop-UP performances.
