Shimmy Mob, 2014

Wise choices create the outcomes we desire.

Previously, I wrote a post — Shimmying for Charity — about World Bellydance Day and Shimmy Mob, a worldwide event to bring awareness to domestic violence as well as fundraise for a local domestic violence shelter.

In that post, I promised a few updates, including photos and a video. I haven’t posted those promised photos yet because, even though World Bellydance Day was May 10, my Shimmy Mob group is performing one more time and hoping to raise a little more money for the Peace River Center Domestic Violence Shelter. Therefore, I still won’t share the video. Yet. I will share a few photos, though.

As you can see, we were a small group, only 6 dancers, but we had a lot of fun during our 4 Shimmy Mob performances on World Bellydance Day.


Our first performance was in front of these beautiful roses in Munn Park.


One member of our audience asked us about the t-shirts. He said he thought Belly dance generally meant that the belly was visible.

And, he is correct. Generally speaking.



Since the event is designed to bring awareness to domestic violence, it would not be appropriate for us to show our bellies during such a performance. Therefore, all 2000+ dancers in 162 cities around the globe wore the exact same t-shirt and performed the exact same choreography in this huge global Shimmy Mob event.


Hollis Gardens — A beautiful location overlooking one of our many lovely lakes.




By the way, each of our group modified our t-shirts in different ways to add to our costumes and display a little individuality.




A quick photo before the music started. Very quick. We really didn’t even have time to get set for this pose before we had to jump up and dance.












Just a few photos from the actual performances.
