Continuing Lesson Series

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.

Pre-registration is closed, but you can still sign up at the door on the first night of class (space permitting).
