   The Carolina Shag
                         North and South Carolina State Dance



This simple step we teach is called our "basic step" gets you started learning our rhythm, timing and how to get started dancing socially.  After learning the social basics in our beginner class...you have the option to learn more advance steps in our Intermediate class (turns, spins, mirror steps and male lead steps, basic step variations) as well as our noted "smoothness" of this dance, which make this dance really fun, interesting and more challenging. The Carolina shag is a male lead dance meaning the male dancers will also learn to lead the dance, and ladies will learn to follow.  Our lessons are group lessons with emphasis on having fun and dancing with others while learning to dance socially. But we also offer lots of tips and instruction on how to look your very best while dancing!!! For those who are a little timid about group lessons at first, we also offer PRIVATE lessons and Private GROUP lessons/workshops, great social fun for all kinds of occassions, including special events like Weddings and Reunions.  See our LESSONS tab (menu) for more information!
