The Shimmy Cats is a performing troupe specializing in Egyptian & Turkish style cabaret belly dance.  They feature many of their own choreographies and enjoy sharing the dance.  Please ask to hire The Shimmy Cats for your event or festival. 

  • Troupe Members: Sophia, Amata, and Roxana are the principal dancers of The Shimmy Cats. 
  • Student Opportunities:  Occasionally, Sophia asks select students to join in performances around the Dayton area.  Since Sophia is a Shimmy Cat, she calls her performing students the Shimmy Kittens.
  • Performance Venues:  The Shimmy Cats perform for the belly dance community at haflas and appear for the general public at local festivals.  You are welcome to attend most of these events.
