An all new six week version of this class!

Fast paced and fun! Shag is an energetic dance that is perfect for faster tempos. It’s really EASY to learn and this class will take you from the basics to moves, variations, and style! If you can remember “slow, slow, quick, quick”, then you can learn Shag! This series will start by teaching you a solid basic with simple turns. It will then move into flashy moves like turns on quicks, camel kicks, shag breaks, sailor kicks, and more. The series will wrap up with some style variations like sailor style shag. You’re sure to get a lot out of this series as Collegiate Shag is one of the easiest swing dances to learn!

“I wanted to compliment you guys on your dedication and skills as instructors. ... on Sunday I did have a break while waiting for Dawn and watched how each of you were instructing and I was impressed. Your love of the dance and dedication is obvious. ... For my own thanks, at every event I've gone to and danced Shag, Balboa, Lindy Hop (and the occassional Charleston) with others from around the world and I've always been thankful for what you guys taught. Most convincing (and testimony to your teaching) were the first times I travelled out of Florida and I danced with skilled follows from far away, and I was like - this stuff really does work all around the world!”
