Cassandra at Shimmy Con in Indiana

Friday-Sunday, July 7–9, 2017

Cassandra joins Ava Fleming, Ruby Jazayre, and Deb Rubin as guest instructors at this year's Shimmy Con!

"Shimmy Con will be the first belly dance event of its kind in Indiana. Consisting of workshops, lectures, panel discussions and performances, Shimmy Con will give dancers in the Midwest a place to come together and share our wonderful art form in a supportive, fun and professional atmosphere. You will have the opportunity to learn, share, grow, be inspired, evolve, meet new people and create new friends.

The journey of the belly dancer is wide and complex. Be inspired and enjoy the dance that you can move to for your entire life. Come to Shimmy Con and experience everything that shimmies."
