19:00-21:00 Saint Louis Shag class – All In – New Swing Studio

St. Louis Shag is a unique dance from St. Louis with a bouncy step that swivels in and out very much like the Charleston. It has patterns with kicks and jumps and can be done to very fast music.

We already taught posture, some basics and classic shapes in our last workshop in February. We will build up on it!

If you already tried St Louis Shag before, or if you are a fast jitterbug/Swing dancer learner, this is the right workshop for you!

Die Trainer:

Laura is a versatile dancer with a 15 year background in ballet, jazz and contemporary dance in France. Yet Collegiate Shag was her first experience with partner dancing when she started in 2015, in Hamburg. Since then, she has traveled the world to learn from the best, and worked on expanding her follower skills through other dances, such as blues, forró or kizomba. She considers that Balboa and Shag belong together, is a strong advocate for smooth partnership, consistent and contrasted body movements in harmony with the music. She likes the magic of being matched with random new dance partners in competitions or socially, and believes in long parties that end up with a decent soul train! 

Victor discovered Shag in 2015 in Barcelona, after starting with Lindy Hop and Blues. He has been seen at various festivals around Europe, basically partying hard, learning The Shag and meeting our international shag family. As a teacher of Lindy Hop, Collegiate and Saint Louis Shag in some schools of his scene, he is very proud of having brought Collegiate and Saint Louis Shag in 2019 to his hometown Lima, in Perú. He believes that Shag can be danced in a very relaxed and explosive way, making it an inclusive dance for all dancers. He really likes to switch between styles while social dancing, jumping from a comfortable Collegiate Shag to a smooth Balboa to an energetic Saint Louis Shag, and keep the flow with his partner. 

These two social animals met in 2017 at a Mix and Match contest in Vilnius and never miss an opportunity to grow together. Watch out : their undying enthusiasm and ability to turn anything into a party is infectuous! 

Am Freitag sind wir ab 21:45 zu Gast beim Universo Swing Ball (Universo Tango, Beim Grünen Jäger 6A, 20359 Hamburg, um zu Lindy Hop und Saint Louis Shag-tauglicher Musik das gelernte gleich anzuwenden.
