It's the SHIM SHAM!
In the first half of this ‘Shim Sham’ spectacular Ray will break down Frankie Manning’s original Shim Sham & really get to grips with it from start to finish, so that no matter how long you’ve been dancing, you’ll be shim shamming like a pro. And also be unable to get ‘T’aint what you do’ out of your head for a week.
This is also where Ray’ll give you some cheeky little variations for the more adventurous dancers among you, some of which are yet to be seen in Oxford!
Once we’ve got your Shim Sham Shining we’ll swiftly shake it off & have a quick break before really bringing the awesome. Silly. Silly awesome.
The Carribean Shim Sham. Choreographed by International dancing champion legend superstar Remy Kouakou Kouame, this version of the shim sham is all sorts of cool, and will leave you with a huge smile on your face. And knees that hate you (Joke). Willingness to be silly is not compulsory for this, but it’d help.
Suitable for all levels.
