About Glasgow Shag Festival
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
In the late 1920s, a swing dance called the Collegiate Shag was born in America and at the time, it was bigger than its dance cousin, the Lindy Hop. Through the years, both dances fell off the radar until the 1980s when Lindy Hop experienced a revival that grew to global proportions and is still a large and active community today.
Although Collegiate Shag took a little longer to experience this re-birth, by the mid-late naughties, it was well on its way to being rediscovered as a favourite and much-loved swing dance.
Glasgow Jitterbugs is very proud to be hosting the third annual international Glasgow Shag Festival this summer and we'd like to invite you to join us in discovering this exciting dance called the Collegiate Shag.
Daytime classes for all levels and evening social dancing to live music will feature over the festival weekend, as well as internationally renowned dance instructors. No partner necessary. Absolute beginners are welcome!
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Glasgow Shag Festival are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
