About us

Welcome to the Shag Republic!

We’re a group of passionate, warm-hearted people who love nothing more than bringing the joy of Collegiate and St. Louis Shag to life. Held in the beautiful city of Prague, Czech Republic, our festival is all about fun, community, and dance.

Our Mission

At the Weekend in the Shag Republic festival, our mission is simple: to share our love for Shag dancing with as many people as possible. We believe in creating a friendly, inclusive atmosphere where everyone—from complete beginners to seasoned pros—can come together, learn, and have a great time.

What We Offer

  • Workshops: Dive into the world of Shag with workshops led by some of the best instructors out there. Whether you’re just starting out or looking to refine your skills, we’ve got something for you.
  • Social Dances: Our social dances are the heart of the festival. Dance the night away to our fantastic local bands and DJ sets, meet new friends, and enjoy the lively, welcoming vibe.
