What is Collegiate Shag?

Shag is one of the classic three major Swing Dance forms (Shag, Lindy Hop, Balboa). It even was spread all over America some years before Lindy Hop became popular. It consists of a lot of hops and kicks and can be danced from medium to very fast music.
It includes elements of the Lindy Hop and at the same time offers a whole lot of different variations which makes it interesting for experienced swing dancers as well as swing beginners.

Different styles were popular in different regions. The different forms of Shag are referred to as Single, Double, and Triple Rhythm Shag. Nowadays the most common form of Shag is the Double Rhythm Shag. It’s based on 6 counts (like Boogie Woogie) and with a simple Slow, Slow, Quick, Quick this form of Shag is very easy to learn. Shag was the hottest dance among the college kids in the 30s, that’s why some styles were called “Collegiate Shag” which is not to be mixed up with Carolina Shag or St. Louis Shag.
