SHAG CLASSES SUMMARY:

CLASS 1 BASIC I

Teaches the basic steps that will allow you to dance the Carolina Shag for the rest of your life and be a “shagger.” The steps you learn will be a part of almost every routine or mirror step you learn in the future. It is very important to learn these steps correctly because they are the foundation of Shag.

CLASS 2 BASIC II

Teaches additional steps to add to your dancing enjoyment. The steps and combinations you learn will make you a better shagger, prepare you for more combination steps and allow you to create your own routines.

CLASS 3 SPECIAL STEP

A review or Core Shag steps and their variations, or a new Special step taught by various club members and guests.

LINE DANCE LESSONS!

On selected Friday nights before the Social Dance, Leigh Lawrence teaches Line Dances popular with Shaggers. Please check the calendar for more information.

WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU ON THE DANCE FLOOR!
