1940s Shag

Shag Workshop

Sunday 23rd June 2019 11.30am - 4.30pm

Shag dates back to the early 30s, and today is now known as Collegiate Shag.
During the '30s it was often danced by college students, who were spicing up traditional ballroom dances and injecting them with some teenage spirit and then tamed by Arthur Murray for a wider audience.
Best suited to medium & faster tempo Swing music, it is most frequently danced with a 6 count 'step hop, step hop, run run' basic step,
alternating between a close hold position, side-by-side and breakaway moves.

If this bouncy style sounds like your kind of thing then hop, kick and truck on down.

What to wear?
When attending classes, the most important thing is to be comfortable and to wear something you can easily move about in - jeans and t-shirt is absolutely fine.
Shoes?
Comfortable every-day shoes are fine when you are just starting out. Make sure you have something which stays securely on your feet (eg. no flip flops!) and which you can spin easily in (very high heels or trainers with sticky soles are not recommended!). After a while, you may want to invest in some dance shoes from the Lindy Hop Shop

Can I drop in?
Sorry these are all progressive courses, designed to be taken as a whole, if you are unable to attend a week you will receive the video review for you to practice on your own and we will help you catch up in the next class

What happens in the unlikely event this course is not for me?
No problem we offer a 100% money back guarantee. If after you attend the first lesson this course is not for you just tell us at the end of the class and we will send you a full refund (including the first week which you can have on us), no quibbles, no fuss. 100% safe.

I can confidently say that I have left every workshop a better dancer with more confidence and always, a big smile, having made new friends.” Charlotte
