Join Toronto’s Shaggers, Phil and Reesa, for a special introductory taste of Collegiate Shag!
Collegiate Shag is a swing dance popular with the College set in the 1930’s and has a history similar to other jazz and swing era dances. Also known as the ‘Flea Hop’, the dance is known for its hopping basic step and high energy footwork that separates it from other forms of swing and other forms of ‘Shag’. Shag has a very animated and youthful style, best suited to fast tempos, and a great addition to your dance repertoire.

LEVEL: This introductory series will be ideal for students at the 1.5 level or higher, for people with other dance experience, or even for ambitious Beginners who are up for an athletic challenge. Phil and Reesa will start from the basic and move you into dancing Shag socially. Take this series to prepare for a higher Shag level coming soon!
