Beginner Shag (sense parella) Online


It’s time to learn to shag, so come shag with us! What is this dance called Collegiate Shag? It’s an American swing dance that originated in the African American community in the 1930’s and is now enjoying a revival all over the world. It’s versatile enough to be danced to all types of music, usually ranging from styles from the early swing era to old rock and roll.

We will get you dancing shag, and include fundamentals such as the basic, classic styles and shag musicality. It’s a workout, so dress comfortably with some slick soled shoes for easier dancing. You don’t need a partner for this class!

We will do a 2-hour session with a ten-minute Q&A afterwards. You will receive private recap videos in your email after the class so that you can practice on your own. (Thanks for not sharing it ;))

All our classes are given in English and are held on Zoom. We ask that you please show up ten minutes early in order for us to verify and mark your attendance as well as give yourself some time to set up your Zoom volume and video. You are not required to keep your camera on while you are dancing, but it’s always nice to say hi before and after class.

Collegiate Shag Solo Rhythms

We’re gonna work on footwork, as always! It’s shag after all. And we’re going to keep exploring Afro-Latin rhythms that influenced Jazz, and see how that fits into a dance like collegiate shag when you’re dancing alone. We’re getting pretty niche here, aren’t we?

This class is created for intermediate/advanced level dancers who have been dancing shag at least a year. It’s a solo class, and we will be teaching it together from the same house.

We’re meeting up on ZOOM on Saturday February 27th at these times:

10:30am-12:00pm London
11:30am-1:00pm Spain
12:30pm-2:00pm Athens

You can opt to buy a recording of the class for the same price if you’re not able to attend (20€). Thank you for not sharing the video!

We realize that shaggers come from many different economic backgrounds. If you’re interested in the workshop, please don’t let the price stop you from signing up. Leave us a note in the form or send us an email and we’ll make something work.
