Shimmy Mob



Shimmy Mob is back in Albuquerque!

Who: For everyone who loves to dance, no experience required.

What: A global flash mob style event. All dancers worldwide will learn the same choreography.

When: Saturday, May 9, 2020 (online) AND Saturday September 12, 2020 (live)

Where: Albuquerque, NM, and all over the world!

Why: This is a community event to show our love of bellydance, but it is also an opportunity to raise awareness of the global epidemic of domestic violence, and educate the public about the early warning signs.

Shimmy Mob Albuquerque has partnered with S.A.F.E. House NM again in 2020. Please donate to our fundraiser if you are able. Reports of domestic violence have TRIPLED since people are staying at home. They need our help!


Sign up at Look for the red button at the top right that says SIGN UP.

Pick your city! Scroll down the list to USA – New Mexico – Albuquerque. (Or other city if you are not in ABQ).

A pop-up will ask your roll. You can be a dancer, youth dancer, donor, volunteer or general helper. Everyone who registers gets a T-shirt.

Create your account – you will be prompted to fill in all of your contact info. I will send updates via email, and also I will form a Facebook group for 2020. I will add you if we are friended. If not, that’s OK. No pressure. Just make sure to check your email if you do not.

Pay $37 + s&h. This will cover the cost of T-shirts, mail, admin, and part will be donated to our local charity (TBA). All T-shirts will be sent to your team leader (ME) and distributed right before the performance day (September 12). The color will be a secret until the box is opened.

This is Shimmy Mob’s 10th year! We will have one main choreo and a finale choreo, and SIX bonus (optional) choreographies. We are going to concentrate on the main choreo though. You may perform the bonus choreos on or after May 9 as you like.

Learn the dance! Go to MY ACCOUNT – My Events – May Choreography and go through the tutorials. They are streaming on the web site. Virtual rehearsals are happening on Zoom. You can join any team around the world who has posted a rehearsal on the Shimmy Mob web page.

On Saturday, May 9 we will all make social media posts about Shimmy Mob and our mission about domestic violence awareness. Participants may post the SM logo, a picture, or perform the dance. On Saturday, September 12 we will (hopefully) all be back together in person and will perform at a location and time TBA.

Contact me with any questions!
