COLLEGIATE SHAG

CS Discoverers

You have one or more years of experience of regular classes and whenever you hear a faster song at socials you can’t help it and you dance shag. You are pretty comfortable with shag middle tempo (approx. 180-200 BPM) and know the basic figures and variations very well. You are curious what more is to be found in this dance and you are still working on your leading and/or following skills.

CS Explorers

You have two and more years of experience of regular classes and you have attended some workshops or even international festivals. You dance shag every week regularly on the social dance floor because why not. You are comfortable with faster shag tempo (above 200 BPM), you know most of the famous shag figures and variations (maybe you have started creating your own).

You are well-known dancer in your community (or maybe also internationally), because you attend socials/workshops/festivals, maybe even teaching shag classes/workshops, whenever you can.
