Ashley’s Adventures: Shag dancing

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — It might look complicated, but basic shag dancing is pretty simple.

Developed back in the late 1930’s, shag is a form of swing dancing.

“We have 27 different styles of swing dancing across the United States. Shag is one of those styles,” explained Babs, the owner of Babs McDance Studio.

Babs explains it as a male peacock dance that shows off the man’s nimble footedness.

At Babs McDance you can learn the basic steps in just a few minutes. If you want to get more advanced and creative, Babs can help with that, too.

Her studio offers both dance classes, private lessons, fitness classes and more.
