A handful of classes, some practise on your own, the basic six- and eight counts under control, and at least a few months of general experience. The level indicates an understanding of fundamentals and a basic ability to dance on a social floor.
This is most likely where the majority of hobby and general social dancers belong. Basic rhythms and general mixing of patterns (six counts, eight counts, charlestons, jig walks et cetera) are familiar, as well as the fundamentals of lead- and follow. The level will both offer quality time around fairly basic material, but even more so try to lift the dance form from an execution of steps to a rhythmical flow of music.
This level is for experienced dancers, not gold-diggers nor dancers that started out last month. On this level the language of rhythms should be spoken fluently and the general flow of the dance be reasonably convincing. Some faster tempi might very well appear and also rhythm variations and personal interpretations. The level in general will provide semi-guided tours in the overall landscape of rhythmical musicality.
Advanced level means advanced dancing and an advanced approach from both the students and the teachers. The ambition of dancers applying for this level should be high, and their background experience should be extensive. This is the level where the art and potential of the dance form fully reveals.
You’ve participated in at least one weekend Collegiate Shag workshop in the last 3 months and you dance Shag on parties on a regular basis or you are taking regular classes for at least 3 months. On this level we assume you’re familiar with Collegiate Shag basic step and some of it’s basic variations, you know the concept of phrasing, you know the lines and body posture, as well as the fundamentals of connection, leading and following. (From Warsaw Shag festival)
You love Collegiate Shag and try to dance it as much as possible. You often travel for Collegiate Shag events around Europe. You can tell in a second on which foot your partner is standing, with your eyes closed. You easily adapt to any partner’s level on the social dance floor, you’re not afraid to participate in jams, competitions or performances. You know most of the Collegiate Shag videos on YouTube by heart.
This is where an average old-school jazz dancer with a decent knowledge around traditional solo steps and traditional routines will feel comfortable. The level will for sure deal with rhythmical fundamentals, but will also open doors to new rooms. The material will cover choreographed pieces, combinations, traditional steps as well as some slightly faster music here and there.
Intermediate Advanced / IA +
If the intermediate level will open doors to new rooms, this level will offer full entrance and presence inside the rooms. Dancers on this level should be able to somehow understand and speak the physical language of swing, and be familiar with lots of traditional solo jazz steps and routines. The program in general will focus on elements around improvisation and development of sensitivity in connection to the music.
St. Louis Shag
Only one group and you know who you are - the crazy Shaggers!
You love St. Louis Shag and try to dance it as much as possible. The minimum in knowledge for this class are sliding doors, kick aways, inside turn, a variation of basics. This class is about creativity and technic for this specific dance to make it even more fun. We are always recommend to take the classes before to make your dance as smooth as possible.
