WORKSHOPS
6:30PM (55min) –  Intro to Collegiate Shag | Swing Workshop
LEVEL: Adv Basics and up)
Location: Auditorium L2
Description: Collegiate Shag is an energetic partner dance that was popular in the 1930s and 40s. Its unique double-rhythm six-count basic and fancy footwork flourishes distinguish it from other styles of swing from the Carolina Shag to the Lindy Hop & Balboa. Today it’s evolved into a polished, dynamic social dance with creative footwork flourishes and seemingly endless patterns. We’ll cover the basic single and double rhythm footwork, dancing from closed to open position and back, breaking away, then we’ll do it all over faster. And finally you’ll learn how it’s easily incorporated into your swing dancing.
Instructors: Paolo & Jaime
