Shag Workshop Leuvenwith Anton & Jasmina

COLLEGIATE SHAG

We hope to get you up on your feet, hopping to the beat, with the high energy steps of Collegiate Shag. Born in student parties and the African-American communities of North and South Carolina in the 1920s and ‘30s, this energetic dance offers an exciting way of dancing to faster swing music.

Shag beginner 6 hours

In this 6-hour workshop our shag teachers,  Anton and Jasmina, will give a crash course on basic collegiate shag steps and figures. You will learn core shag steps, characterised by a relaxed upper body but crazy, kicking legs, allowing you to follow and enjoy the fastest swing tunes with minimal effort.

The course is addressed to all of you who are new to collegiate shag, and like dancing on fast songs. 

Our teachers will give it their all so you can learn Collegiate Shag in a relaxed and happy atmosphere!

About theTeachers

Apollo swing Anton

Anton Potocnik

Since his youth growing up in Slovenija, Anton has been interested in the art of body movement, and was especially drawn to dances that combined improvisation alongside interaction with a partner. After many years dancing salsa, Anton moved to Zurich where he met swing dancers, and immediately fell in love with Lindy Hop. Never before had he realized how much fun dancing could be! It was through the Lindy that he found his latest obsession - Collegiate Shag - where no song is fast enough for him! The fast kicks and energetic music drive a free and abandoned expression that keeps Anton on the dance floor all night long. Drawing his inspiration from US instructors, Steven and Chanzie, alongside a number of other incredible international teachers, Anton is now active in developing the Collegiate Shag scene in Belgium.
