Shaggin’ in the Rain 2018 – Collegiate Shag Festival
September 28, 2018 @ 15:00 - September 30, 2018 @ 20:00
The second edition of Shaggin’ in the Rain will take place this coming september and since it’ll be a bit earlier this year it shouldn’t be so rainy which somehow fits us well so we can show Copenhagen from a better angle 😉
Join us for this weekend of 4 levels of Collegiate Shag, 3 days of parties and socials, fun competetions, sauna time and much more.

Level 1: Raindrop (Beginner)
This level will start at the very beginning ensuring that you learn the technique, basics and soul of Collegiate Shag. So it is for everyone who would like to learn shag for the first time but also suitable if you already know some basics from a round of classes but want to try what a dancing festival is like or if you want to get a restart of the dance after som time away. The aim is to get comfortable with your basic technique and get to know figures and fun variations to play with during the weekend and after.
NOTE for Copenhagen dancers: You don’t need any prior Shag-experience but you might still feel most comfortable here, if you have finished (or nearly) Shag 1 at Happy Feet Studio or if you have gone through one round of Collegiate Shag at Hepcats.
Level 2: Light Rain (Intermediate)
You’ve already been dancing collegiate shag for a while and have attended weekly classes for almost half a year. You know various types of basics and variations but sometimes you still have to think about your footwork. You have reached a point where you can enjoy social dancing without having to worry too much about your technique. You have a growing repertoire of moves and social dance shag regularly. You are familiar with at least one version of the Shag-out and are comfortable with several forms of breaks or rythm-variations.
NOTE for Copenhagen Shagsters: This level is suitable for you if you have already finished at least one round of Shag 2 at Happy Feet Studio.
Level 3: Heavy rain (Intermediate/Advanced
This level is for relatively experienced shagsters who have danced regularly for at least a year and participated in at least one international Collegiate Shag festival.
You use breaks and can change between different rhythms (single and double time shag) and footwork techniques. Your styling and expression reflects the music, whether it be tiny and smooth or big and explosive. You use a range of figures and are comfortable dancing to faster music (220+ BPM).
NOTE for Copenhagen Shagsters: NOTE for Copenhagen Shagsters: This level is suitable for you if you have already finished at least one rounds of Shag 3 at Happy Feet Studio.
Level 4: Monsoon (Advanced)
This level is for very experienced shagsters who have already shagged around both on your home scene an internationally for at least one and a half years. You are ambitious and want to both drill technicality and flashy moves without losing control of either of those parts in your dancing. No song is to fast since you will always find a great way of playing with that big passion of shag. You might already teach at your home scene and if not it’s probably just a matter of time.
NOTE for Copenhagen Shagsters: This level is suitable for you if you are not just taking classes at the highest level available in Copenhagen but also have participated in several workshops both national and international or in general have more than 1 and a half years of experience with dancing collegiate shag. If any doubt please don’t hesitate to ask us in the organizing team about advice.
