Most of this article will focus on the Lindy Hop of the 1937 Harvest Moon Ball. However, we want to first discuss something important that happened in this year’s ball. In that announcement mentioned above, a new dance appeared in the listing of the divisions: “Collegiate Shag.”
What is this dance today called Collegiate Shag? Where did it come from and what is it’s history? The truth is the Collegiate Shag history is very spotty.
Our favorite vintage Shag clips. Dance scenes from old movies and contests. Mostly Collegiate Shag, a bit of Big Apple, Balboa, Tap and other Swing.
