About the SHAG CAMP

This is not a regular dance weekend workshop or festival.

This is a training & coaching camp for intermediate-advanced dancers with classes, lectures, practice sessions and lots of personal feedback.
Limited to a small group of 40 enthusiasts who are focused on improving, so you can actually work and make friends with everyone.
Free time?! Lake, sauna, basketball, volleyball, tennis court or practicing even more..
