We believe in teaching easy to learn lead/follow dance techniques that allow people to dance together in a social dance situation rather that relying on complex mirror patterns that are hard to remember and make it nearly impossible to dance with people you don’t practice with!

Who We are:

Randy and Sue Bowling have been teaching shag dancing in the Myrtle Beach area for over 12+ years. We are well known for our smooth style dancing that does not require memorizing mirror step patterns.. Our students learn to dance in a way that makes it easy to dance with any one in a social situation and do very well. We have taught literally hundreds of Myrtle Beach people to shag. Fat Harold's and Ducks are filled with people who will tell you about their experience with us. We also perform exhibition dancing at conventions in our area. 


What we teach:

    We teach the same subjects in both private and class lessons. Classes are FUN and you get to meet and dance with other people. Private lessons are more detailed for your own particular needs.

     Please start with our Beginners Class and graduate to our Intermediate class after you can easily perform all the beginner shag steps

Beginners typically learn:
     The basic, start, female turn, male turn, spin-into-side, trail, moving around, and belly roll! We also teach the men the secrets of leading so your lady can dance with you much better!

Intermediates learn:
The secrets to developing smoothness in your dance! Plus: stutter steps, kick-back, pivot, dancing belly roll, setups, hooks, boogie walk, popovers, doo-dah, apple jack, sugar foot, tuck-and -shift technique, fancy foot work, and on and on....

Advanced Students learn:
complex pivots, advanced foot work, jump-under's, barrel rolls, advanced basic variations, lay-outs, and spins. Plus we teach you how to craft your own dance style and custom steps.

How we teach:

Each lesson is designed to help the student learn to dance while developing their own individual style. We teach simple methods for leading and following so you can dance with any partner smoothly and confidently in a social dance situation. Our classes are planned to be a continuing set. You may take one class or a set of them and build your knowledge of shag dancing.
