Collegiate shag beginner’s weekend 4-5/11

Dance like the college kids of the 1930’s with this elegant and goofy dance! 

Collegiate shag is an African American vernacular dance from the 1930’s and 1940’s, and danced primarily to uptempo swing jazz music. While shag was danced all across the US, it is believed to have originated in the Carolinas in the 1920’s. Shag can be goofy and fun, or elegant and stylistic. Shag is for everyone, not just athletes! 

In this beginner’s weekend you will learn the fundamentals of Collegiate shag. You will learn several basic rhythms, footwork variations, and turns, as well as the main positions and techniques for connecting with your partner. After this class, you will be able to dance socially and build on your knowledge in other classes. 

Till våra kurser kommer deltagare ensamma, i par eller med ett gäng vänner. Om du anmäler dig i ett par (förare + följare) är ni garanterade plats så länge kursen inte är fulltecknad. På kursen roterar vi med jämna mellanrum och byter danspartner.

Many people attend our classes alone, with a partner, or with a group of friends. If you register as a pair (as follower and leader) you are guaranteed a spot in the class so long as the class is not already full. We rotate and change dance partners in all classes, regardless of how you registered, so that everyone can learn the dance and how to dance socially with others.
