St Louis Shag

Swing On In Dance School Does the St Louis Shag

The St Louis Shag is another great partner swing dance that is derived from the Charleston dance. This origin of this style of dance comes from Missouri in USA, where the southern tradition of jump music and boogie-woogie music was prevalent and popular.


The St Louis Shag is commonly danced to music with a fast tempo making this style a good choice for a social and party atmosphere. Although it is an energetic dance style the dancer does not actually appear to move around a lot, keeping in their legs within a small area throughout the dance.
