What’s Collegiate Shag?: Take a Look HERE 

Collegiate Shag is a partnered swing dance that originated in the 1930s.
It has a history similar to other jazz and swing era dances, such as the Charleston, Lindy Hop, and Balboa.

There are virtually as many “shag” dances as there were locations to dance – back in the day most regions had their own shag variant.
What is widely referred to as Collegiate Shag today is a dance that probably originated with college kids during the jazz and swing era. It’s usually associated with a 6-count basic, quick and flashy footwork and a chugging rhythm. It may be danced in closed position, open position or side by side.
The true history is sketchy and much argued, but the fun is undeniable!

Does it have to be fast? No. Collegiate Shag suits a variety of tempos.
Is it all about bouncing up and down? No, social shag dancing can be done in a relaxed and comfortable way so you can dance all night!

Monthly Socials – Ours and Others

Due to there’d being so many fabulous dancing events to get to (we could not say that in 2020 could we!)  we thought it best to pull back from offering monthly GC and Mullumbimby socials flooding the market and overworking you all  perhaps! hehehe!   Now, we are going swap it about and do moth about ie:  3RD FRIDAY OF THE MONTH it will being either Mullum or GC ie:
