Shimmy Mob has been blessed with some wonderful choreographies over the years. Every year, we hold a contest to find the new, official Shimmy Mob choreography (this year's contest closed on December 6, 2018); the winner will be announced early in January 2019.
The winner of the contest gets to view her work performed at multiple locations around the globe on the day of the event. Registered dancers can perform the choreography any time afterwards, providing that proper credit is given to the author and to Shimmy Mob.

She is well known for her savvy ability to choreograph in many different styles of belly dance and her very clear method of teaching the art of belly dance to all levels of students! Sa'diyya's style of belly dance is dominated by the jazzy American Cabaret style, with a heavy influence of Egyptian Raks Sharqi.
Her solo and troupe performances and choreographies have won more than 20 awards in national and international belly dance competitions, including Season 2 of "Project Belly Dance, America's Next Top Belly Dancer." Sa'diyya now has her own line of downloadable instructional videos that have sold all over the world! Learn more about "Sa'diyya Online" on her website.
One of her most recent projects was producing the unique belly dance event, "Ahlam Al Raks" on July 6-8, 2018 in Frisco, TX featuring Cassandra Fox! This event included more than 12 hours of dance workshops, a black-box theater gala show and an improvisational belly dance competition.
