  1. We were introduced to shag this year while in Myrtle Beach. We east and west coast swing and no one in Ottawa, Canada offers shag lessons. We thought we would come down for Spring Safari 2014. We want to take lessons and learn,. We had some great nights dancing at Harold’s! Look forward to hearing from you.
