Shim Sham Speciality Class

  • Kake's Studios 2115 Pearl St Boulder, CO, 80302 United States (map)

Every December, we switch up our regular progressive schedule, and bring in a set of unique, guest instructors and themes for each night. This year we are excited to have a variety of themes including Shag, Balboa, and the Shim Sham. Tonight's class will be a two-hour Shim Sham class with Krister Shalm.The Shim Sham is a line dance based around solo jazz steps that is done all around the world. In the first hour we will be teaching the basic Shim Sham, while in the second hour we will be putting some fun twists and variations into the moves. A video of the Shim Sham is included below.

Please note that our beginner’s class will remain progressive, and the level 2 and 3 curriculum will continue in January. Also, the December series will only last for 3 weeks, and there will be no classes on the 22nd or 29th. Here’s a complete list of our December Drop-In Series:
