Carolina shag dancers are, to me, one of the best sources of entertainment. Watching them sway their hip and legs to the rhythm of music looks remarkable. They appear to be gliding over the floor.
Carolina Shag dancing is a form of swing dance that originated in the coastal regions of the Carolinas. It is a fun and easy dance which combines the traditional 8–count swing patterns with the syncopated beach music. Carolina Shag is a social dance that is usually done in couples and is a great way to relax and have a good time. It can be done in a variety of settings such as social dances, competitions, and even on the beach.
At the 2020 National Shag Dance Championships, these two contestants really show how it’s done. Ivy Claire Huiet and Jonathan Kemp walk into the dance floor after a brief introduction they began right away to Bobby Darin’s “Lazy River.”
The crowd cheers from the very beginning and as they start doing technical leg work. We can hear the audience growing louder.
Although they are young, their performance is a sight to see. Jonathan Kemp never misses showing his smooth skills with exceptional timing. Furthermore, Ivy is equally amazing with her graceful footwork and charming smile. The duo puts on a great show. It’s no surprise that they won the competition after successfully winning the hearts of judges. Watch the video below and please leave us a Facebook comment to let us know what you thought!
