Our pals at Swing Patrol Brisbane are running a series of Workshops throughout 2024 and they have asked us to come and teach the ST LOUIS SHAG!  It’s one of our favorite dances but have not taught it on the GC for ages so here is your chance to learn something new and bust out ont he social dance floor!  LINK TO DETAILS AND HOW TO BOOK HERE

What is it:

The St Louis Shag is another great partnered swing dance, derived from the Charleston. The style originates in Missouri 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.
