    I seem to remember this dance in the far distant past. It reminds me of "American Bandstand." I used to stand in front of my TV and try to learn all the dances by watching the show. We had a large public pool in our little town and that a dance floor with a juke box and all the latest records. All the kids of all ages hung out there all summer. Our parents could buy us a season ticket for $20 for the whole summer. We were safe and it was in walking distance from my house. We girls would put our nickels in the juke box and dance away - together. All the dances that we learned on "American Bandstand'. What fun. This really brought back memories. Thanks for sharing.

    Does that child have any bones in his legs? Very talented kids! I wish I could dance like that. My daughter and I were going to take swing lessons after I finished school but I had to have surgery and that went out the window. It just looks like so much fun!

    Love shag dancing. That's always part of our beach festival down here! Those kids have more rythm in their little fingers than I have in my whole old body!

    When Mother and Daddy danced it in the early '40s, it was the Jitterbug, when my boyfriend (aka dh) and I danced it in the late '50s early 60's, it was the Swing. When did it become known as the Shag? I've been out of the dance loop for a long time. Thanks for posting both links. So much fun to watch.
