What is Shag Dancing?

The Carolina shag is a vibrant partner dance characterized by its energetic movements. It is typically performed to the lively beats of beach music, which range from 100 to 130+ beats per minute in a 4/4 time signature. This dance style has gained recognition in national and international competitions, adding to its appeal and popularity.

In terms of technique, the basic step in Carolina shag consists of a six-count, eight-step pattern danced within a designated slot. The rhythm resembles a six-count Swing, featuring a triple step, triple step, rock step sequence, often counted as “one-and-two, three-and-four, five-six.” The dance pattern incorporates eight shag steps, with the “one-and-two” and “three-and-four” steps taking approximately the same amount of time to complete as the “five-six.”

It’s important to note that Carolina shag stands out for its unique style, often differing significantly from other dances that share the “shag” designation. This distinctiveness adds to the allure and intrigue of the Carolina shag, making it a captivating and dynamic dance form.
