☆ Frosty the Snowman (Beginner / Refresher) ☆
You are completely new to this dance or you have already attended one or maybe two beginner workshops (or have just started attending a beginner class) but you still want to solidify your skills. Welcome to our Beginner and Refresher Class - “Frosty the Snowman”
☆ Rudolph, the Red –Nosed Reindeer (Intermediate) ☆
You are already dancing Shag at an improver level, meaning that you have most likely been attending a weekly Shag class for a while now. Probably you have been to three or more (international) Collegiate Shag workshops in intermediate levels. You have social danced Shag on many occasions now. You are familiar with the 6-count (double time) basics and some variations in footwork. Your comfort zone for dancing relaxed and on time is at least to songs up to 200 bpm or even more (check with a partner the songs below). Your aim is to learn new steps and improve your technique – you are ready to take it to the next level. Welcome to “Rudolph, the red-nosed Reindeer”!
180 Bpm: Tommy Dorsey & his clambake seven - The music goes ´round and around / Slim Slam – Look-a there
186 bpm: The Krokodillos – All of me
188 bpm: Erskine Hawkins – No Use Squawkin
188 bpm: Ella Fitzgerald - The Dipsy Doodle
196 bpm: Tommy Dorsey - The Music Goes Round and Round
201 bpm: Artie shaw - One night stand

☆ Santa (Intermediate-Advanced) ☆
You are taking classes at least in an intermediate level, or better in an advance level. You are also attending high level workshops, especially international. You can vary your footwork-style in different shag-patterns (single-, double-, triple- and long-rhythm shag) without getting confused on your own footwork. You have an impressive repertoire of moves under your belt as you know moves like Tandem, Titanic and Shagout and you already started to play around. You prefer to dance to songs with tempi up to 220 bpm an even more and you and your partner are still feeling comfortable by executing complex dancing-figures (check with a partner the songs below). Now you want to take it to the next level and refine your techniques as well as expand on the moves you know. On this level, the figures and technique are very challenging. Teaching will proceed at a quick pace. This fits for you? Welcome to “Santa”
216 bpm: Django Reinhardt – Sweet Sue
219 Snake Hips – Mills Blue Rhythm Band
220 bpm: The Bumper Jacksons – Hold that Tiger
228 bpm: Hot Sugar Band – Topsy
