If you’ve never heard of the Carolina shag, don’t feel bad. We hadn’t either, but now we can’t get enough. A little more obscure than the acrobatic swing dancing you’ve seen on television time after time, the shag starts out seeming not nearly as exciting. This regional dance craze from the ‘40s is packing a secret weapon, though.
The incredible footwork of Jackie and Charlie of ShagAtlanta demonstrates how this style is anything but restrained, as their legs and feet seem to defy the laws of physics. It’s like moon-walking turned into a full-fledged couples dance.
