Shaggin' Montreal 2017 Stanstead, QC
Shaggin' Montreal 2017 9/22/2017 City: Stanstead, QC, Canada Dances: Balboa, Shag Shaggin’ Montreal isn’t your average swing dance weekend. Collegiate Shag is a much smaller community than, say Lindy Hop. Our event has the specific purpose of welcoming beginners into our community and providing people with a chance to become dancers. At the same time, few dances are as loosely defined and diversely expressed as Collegiate Shag, that we are exploring a personal interpretation of the dance. Dancers attending are encouraged to explore and hear from many viewpoints as they find their own personal style and interpretation of the dance. We encourage guests to borrow from other dances, whether it’s Lindy Hop, Contemporary, Rhythm Tap or Hip Hop.
