Hello out there, it's your girl Alex. And today, I'm going to teach you a little bit of the shag dance, which is a couple dance, you know you can do it anytime at a party or anywhere. Some people can even do it, they don't even know what it is. So, you'll be first one doing it. So, I'm going to teach you from the guy's perspective first. So, you'll step up; one, two, three; then step back; one, two, three. And then, do a weight shift; right, left. So, your weight shift will be forward, back. So, now, your back leg will be your lead leg and then you'll do, one, two, three; one, two three, shift, shift. Now, it's all, almost similar for the female side. With the females, we're starting the same way. One, two, three; back, one, two, three. But this time, it's just a step, step. So, again, that's one, two, three, one, two, three, step, step. And then the dance just goes on and on. And once you keep doing this, sometimes you can add a turn like this, one, two, three; one, two, three, step, step; one, two, three; one, two, three; shift, shift. One, two, three; one, two, three, step, step. So, it's all the same and that was the shag dance.
