Don’t know what your level is? Read the descriptions carefully and, if you’re still in doubt, you can always ask us. But, above all, be honest! Having a similar level in each group is the best way to make the most of the lessons.
LEVEL 0 (BEGINNER PASS):
I WANT TO TRY OUT SHAG
You’ve seen how cool shag is and want to try it out or maybe you’ve done a taster or workshop and know the basics, but you’d like to start from the beginning.
I LIKE SHAG
You’ve received regular classes during one or two terms, or you’ve taken several workshops. You know the basic footwork and some moves. You’d like to keep on learning moves and improving your technique to start letting yourself loose on the dance floor.
I LOVE SHAG
You dance shag for over a year now. You have attended several terms of regular courses or workshops and know a great variety of moves and variations. You may have also attended other shag festivals. You dance shag socially whenever you have the chance and the tempo allows it.
mad about shag
You have been dancing shag for at least two or three years and have had several teachers. You know complex figures and variations to the basic steps. You frequently assist festivals (Barcelona, Warsaw, Lithuania…) and you sometimes compete. Shag is definitely your thing and when the music is over 180 bpm you want to dance nothing else.
NOTICE: Arnas & Egle will teach in English. Sandy & Martí will do it in a crazy and funny mix between Spanish, Catalan and English (Cataspanglish). María & Javi speak more than 20 lenguages, but they will teach in Spanish. Sara Pista will shoot in English. Madrid Hot Jazz Band… who knows what they will do? ;-)
The final timetables are still to come, but for you to start organising yourselves here’s some initial information:
Classes will be held all day Saturday and on Sunday morning, except for level 0 classes which will be held on Friday afternoon and Saturday; and ‘Half Pass’ classes (just Saturday at mid-day).
Parties will be on Friday and Saturday night. There won’t be a party on Sunday night, but there will be a group lunch (optional).
