Dancing is already fun itself, but it’s even more enjoyable when you’re doing it with a group while winning awards.

Joy In Dancing


Whether you’re dancing just for fun or professionally, we can all agree that it is one of the most fun ways of expressing yourself in an emotional manner.

Grab A Partner


When performing dances that require a partner, it’s important that you are conscious of each other’s movements and body language, and the same applies when you’re dancing with a group.

The Carolina Shag


The Carolina shag is a partner dance performance to beach music. Today, it is a dance acknowledged in national and international dance competitions.

Even if the steps for the Carolina Shag are fairly simple, the Carolina Shag Dancers added some flair to their routine as they boogied their way across the dance floor in their hot pink jumpsuits and black dress shirts and pants.
