Collegiate shag workshop with Vivien and Jason!

Collegiate Shag is a partnered dance to up-tempo swing music; which came about in 1920s/30s. Considered a rebellious type of dance, known for its fast footwork, it can be danced in a variety of styles.

Vivien found her love of Lindy a little over 2 years ago and picked up Collegiate Shag a year later. Her passion lies in having a quality dance connection and injecting playful styling.

Jason got into dancing through Collegiate Shag's quick tempo. He enjoys the challenge of maintaining great technique, despite faster tunes!

12-1.30pm Join us as we take you through some technique driven basics and sweet sequences in the first class to get you jumping beans hopping.

1.30-2.30pm Break (not the dancey kind but the one where you stuff your faces with noms)

2.30-4pm After lunch we'll get you bopping along to some flashier Shagilicious moves.

The workshop is open to all levels of dancers. The basics will be covered at the start for those who have never tried shag before and there will be something in it for everybody!

It's International Jellybean day and Earth day so we might throw in some themed songs/moves through the day!
