Collegiate Shag  
I always liked the "idea" of shag,but it never felt quite right and most of what I saw was a bit stiff or overly bouncy or choppy.

Then I went to Munich and met these guys and saw this performance from very close up:

I love this performance so much. Lively, smooth, super musical. If you notice her shoe comes off partway about of the third of the way through.  And she still rocks it!

It also helps that they were outstanding teachers in their classes and so nice to boot. I got to dance with him :D

Now I just wanna shag, but i do find it very difficult, once you get out of step it is quite hard to recover!

Good lord! that's AMAZING!! I'm nicking this for FB :)) I showed it to Jordan as he plays this music on his guitar (loves it!) he thinks it's amazing too. I said he should learn how to shag. :))

I love all the swing dances: balboa, lindy hop and a little bit shag. Partly is these guys that are very good, most shag dancers are not at all like this.

That's pretty amazing. Also, I can't believe she kept going with that shoe failure.

I do have to admit, though, that my inner child really just wants to repeat the phrase, "Now I just wanna shag!" over and over. :)

They really are astonishingly good. I love shagging jokes including but not limited to references to shagging like a man and shagging with lots of boys in public..
