Join us as we welcome guest instructors Kerry Kapaku and David Deenik, recent World Champions of St. Louis Shag to a special SwingColumbus crash course! This crash course will last four hours and will get you doing St. Louis Shag with the best of them.

Don’t know about St. Louis Shag? This dance is making a resurgence thanks to the hard work of St. Louis dancers Christian Frommelt and Jenny Shirar, who have been teaching yearly at our big fall workshop, Rocktober. Christian and Jenny brought St. Louis Shag to the world by featuring it at their event, the Nevermore Jazz Ball. Don’t be left behind!

Here is a video of Kerry and David (1:57; 4:05; 6:01) winning the 2016 Nevermore Jazz Ball St. Louis Shag contest:
