About the workshops
Workshop 1 - Intro to Collegiate Shag
1pm - 2:30pm
Pre-requisites for Workshop 1 - basic experience with 6-count swing will be very helpful, but is not required.
In this 90-minute workshop, students will learn the basics of this fun, high-energy form of swing dancing. Not to be confused with slow & groovy Carolina Shag, Collegiate Shag is danced to uptempo music and features hops, kicks and fast turns that are sure to keep you on your toes!

Workshop 2 - Intermediate Collegiate Shag

Pre-requisites for Workshop 2 - students taking the Intermediate workshop must take the Intro workshop or be able to already correctly demonstrate all of the following: a 6-count Shag basic in both closed and open position, outside turns in closed position, change of places in open position with or without turns.
In this 2 and a half hour workshop, Chelsea and David will get into more complex patterns and turns to challenge intermediate dancers. Bring a water bottle and be prepared to sweat!
