St. Louis Shag dance
St. Louis shag is a couple swing dance, which is quite different from its "brother" in name, the Collegiate Shag. It is named after the city of St. Louis in Missouri and is a direct "descendant" of Charleston, from where it partially took the steps on which it is now being danced.
Just like it was with Collegiate, in different places it was danced in different ways, and also to different music: first it was jazz, then rock-and-roll was added. One thing is still there - he is fast and funny.
