The SHIM SHAM is based on an authentic tap-routine, transformed by Frankie Manning to a great jazz routine. We all know how frustrating it is to be a beginner swing dancer, get to an event and at some point in the evening see all the other dancers gather in the middle of the dance floor and start this line dance that everybody seems to know but you… We’ve all been there! But not anymore after this workshop!
It is the classic solo jazz choreography that every swing dancer should know. It has lots of little ingredients that can improve your partner dancing, but mostly it’s a fun and breezy solo routine that you can rock out at the next lindy hop party.
You can find the full story of the Shim Sham routine on wikipedia.
Learn the SHIM SHAG - a collegiate shag version of the original shim sham routine!
In this workshop we will learn a fun and easy solo routine the Shim Shag.
You will also get to know Collegiate shag essentials, like footwork basics, body posture and kicks, which will come handy on fast songs. It doesn't matter, if you are an experienced shag dancer or lindy hopper, have danced collegiate shag before, know the basics or maybe never even tried it.
Let's enjoy dancing together while working on your solo technique and very soon you could surprise your friends with the shim shag at the next dance party!
