Anton & Lies
After many years of dancing salsa, Anton moved to Zurich where he met swing dancers and immediately fell in love with Collegiate Shag where no song is fast enough for him. Fast kicks, mindless thinking and energetic music is what keeps him on a dance floor until the very last song.
With a love for social dancing and a passion for self-development to become a better dancer Lies hopes to inspire people to learn and enjoy everyday dancing as much as she does. No matter if it is Lindy, Balboa, or Collegiate Shag you will always find her with a big smile on a social floor moving in old and new rhythms of swing music.
Since September 2018 Anton & Lies teach weekly Shag classes at Apollo Hop danceschool.
In this 3-hour class our Brussels shag teachers, Lies and Anton, will give a crash course on basic collegiate shag steps and figures. The course is addressed to all of you who are new to collegiate shag, like dancing on fast songs and have at least two years of lindy hop dancing experience. After this crash course you will be able to follow collegiate shag beginner/intermediate classes on Saturday and Sunday.
You know basic shag steps and you can do them without thinking. You also master basic shag figures, such as inside, outside turns (she-goes, he-goes), tuck turns and you are comfortable dancing in open and closed positions. You have followed regular weekly collegiate shag classes for at least 6 months or you have done several weekend shag workshops. This track is also open for experienced lindy-hop dancers who follow the Friday shag beginner intro course.
You are familiar with a great number of figures and you know how to successfully lead or follow them. You can improvise without loosing the footwork. You are eager to learn new moves and to improve your technique. You have followed regular weekly classes for at least a year and you dance shag regularly in social events.
