About the event

As part of our 13th anniversary celebration we're teaching two Shag workshops! 

Advanced registration is now closed. 

2:00 - 3:30 PM: Workshop #1: Collegiate Shag is a partner dance that originated in the 1930s and has a history similar to other jazz and swing era dances, such as Charleston, Lindy Hop, and Balboa. The dance is known for its hopping basic step and high energy footwork that separates it from other forms of swing and other dances that use the shag name, such as Carolina Shag or St. Louis Shag.

3:45 - 5:15 PM: Workshop #2: St. Louis Shag is a partner dance that originated in the 1930s in St. Louis, Missouri and evolved from Lindy Hop and Charleston. The dance is known for its 8-count basic - triple step, kick, triple step, kick - and is danced to mid to high tempo music.

Registration at the door: $20 per workshop or $35 for both

Open to all ages. Individuals and partners welcome. Masks highly encouraged.
