Welcome to our 7th annual Shag Explosion! We're bringing back the Canadian Shag Dance Championships!
We'll also have classes aimed at different levels to ensure dancers of all levels get the most out of the weekend! With all these teachers, all these classes, some of the best Shag social dancing you can enjoy, and some spectacular contests that keep getting better every year, this is one weekend to remember!
Collegiate Shag is an exciting, fast-paced style of swing dancing emphasizing cool footwork and crazy kicks, that was especially popular among young people in the 20's and 30's. It's a dance that can be extremely fun and impressive-looking after an amazingly short time learning it, with lots of kicks and dynamic moves. Learn more about Collegiate Shag in the videos section.
More than just a bunch of contests, the Shag Championships will be an amazing night of live swing music for an amazing night of Shag--and of course Charleston, Lindy Hop and Balboa if you want!
One again, we've assembled some of North America's best swing dance teachers and performers to make your dancing explode! Check out 2013's stellar line-up!
