What is Shag Dancing?
Shag Dancing is also known as the Carolina Shag - so the 8th Annual East Coast Shag Classic is right at home in North Carolina. The Shag is a dance style that resembles the East Coast Swing with a touch of the West Coast Swing. Emphasis is placed on the dancers interactions with eachother rather than the crowd and there is some great footwork involved. Most of the dance involves just one hand between two dancers. The East Coast Shag allows for freedom and always provides a great time.
