THE KILLER SHAG Instructional

THE KILLER SHAG | LINE DANCES at the PIER SERIES
LEVEL: 3+

THE KILLER SHAG is a rapid fire high octane routine that's a collection of both Collegiate Shag, Boogie Woogie and Lindy Hop patterns. It's inspired and based off the KILLER BOOGIE routine. The main difference is the 6 count triple steps all are swapped out with COLLEGIATE SHAG patterns.

HISTORY
Jan Rietman, a Dutch pianist and radio and television announcer, released the single “Killer Boogie” in 1973 as a solo piano (boogie woogie style) recording.

A few decades later (circa 1997) Boogie Woogie and Lindy Hop extraordinaire Marcus Koch released a video, “Footwork Fast and Fancy,” as part of an instructional series. In it he performs a short routine matching dance steps to this recording of Killer Boogie. It then became known as the KILLER BOOGIE in the dance world. THE KILLER SHAG, based on this very routine was introduced in 2018 by a California SHAG team led by Johnny Blue Jeans.
