MEDAH JOINS THE 2015 WORLD WIDE SHIMMY MOB!

173 cities and counting are participating in the 2015 World Wide Shimmy Mob on May 9, 2015!

Looking for a worthy cause to be involved in? Take part in the world's largest international belly dance event: Shimmy Mob! The Shimmy Mob was created to raise awareness for shelters for victims of abuse.

United, we dance using the same song and the same choreography, wearing the same t-shirt, sharing the same goals, on the same day all over the world. This year, we are celebrating the 5th anniversary and we aim to break the world record again!

We invite all dancers at all levels to participate. Super fun and easy to learn, the 2015 choreography provides step-by-step breakdown in online videos.

What are you waiting for? Join your friends and sign up now!!!

Once you sign up, you'll be sent an official t-shirt and have access to the choreography online...then follow MEDAH on Facebook to learn where we're meeting to rehearse, and to perform!
