Collegiate Shag Classes

The Collegiate Shag is a form of swing dancing, which has some visual similarity with balboa (another swing dance), but with different footwork. Danced with a lead and follow, it is now danced to primarily upper tempo jazz music (usually 200+ beats per minute) while historically it was danced to a variety of tempos but primarily mid-tempos. Three forms of "Collegiate Shag" danced in the early thirties were termed single, double, and triple Shag.
