Continuing Lesson Series

Classes start 4/4 – Sign up today!

We’re excited to bring back our Continuing Lesson Series with Doug Rousar, now with Carolina Shag 2! If you’re proficient with WCS basics (whips, passes, pushes, turns) and some of their variations, you’re ready for these classes. For Shag 2, you’ll need to know the concepts taught in Beginner Shag.

Registration policy: The club requires a minimum enrollment level in order to be make our classes cost-effective. This means if there are not enough students pre-registered by March 28th, the lesson series will not run.

Pre-register by 3/28! Get a discount and make sure the classes run!
