Yes, this Saturday we’ve got special guests Dai and Sharon Roland coming all the way from Newport to give us an exciting taster class in COLLEGIATE SHAG.
Carry On jokes aside, this is a very energetic swing dance that emerged on the 1930s college swing dance scene. It’s a lot of fun, and a few of us from Hot Ginger were recently knocked out by some awesome Shag dancers at the recent Hepcats’ Holiday weekender.
The taster will most likely be at a sedate pace just to get you used to the basics. We don’t think it will be quite as full on as the video clips below!
So make sure you take this chance to learn the basic step so you can take it further at your leisure. We’re not sure, but this might well be the first ever Shag class in Birmingham! It’s certainly a very rare chance to have a go at this increasingly popular swing dance.
Get there for 7.30. The class is free and part of your Hot Ginger Hawaiian Hula Party Night ticket.
See you there!
