Many may perceive shag dancing as a partner-only genre, rooted in a tradition where males typically lead females. However, modern shag dancing has evolved beyond this notion. Nowadays, it’s common to see group shag performances, challenging the belief that intricate steps are impractical in larger settings.

While shag dancers on television are often adults or seniors, a group of young enthusiasts is defying stereotypes by embracing this traditional art form. Ranging from ages 14 to 20, these individuals formed the Junior Shag Dance Team to showcase their passion for Carolina shag.

In 2016, at the Grand National Dance Championship (GNDC), the Junior Shag Dance Team claimed victory. Established in 1995, the GNDC is renowned as the largest Carolina Shag and West Coast Swing event globally, held annually on Memorial Weekend.

Their captivating routine featured iconic tracks like The Temptations’ “Papa Was A Rollin’ Stone,” Aretha Franklin’s “Think,” and Little Richard’s “Midnight Special.”

The team executed each step with precision, dancing as one cohesive unit, even when splitting into six pairs. Spectators couldn’t help but marvel at their flawless performance, lauding their “excellent moves.”

“Wow! They must have had an incredible mentor to guide these talented youngsters to such an outstanding performance,” remarked one impressed observer
