National Shag Dance

These two are the winners of the 2012 Junior Division National Shag dance competition.  He's 17, she's only 15.  They are both very talented, but the 17 year old is incredible.  The original description said his legs were like liquid magic, and it's true.  Enjoy!

I guess I missed the whole shag dance movement, but I love the fluidity of it. The resolution isn't so good in the video, so I couldn't tell if this is true or not, but his pants look like the crotch is really low, kind of an MC Hammer look.
It's unusual to see the guy dancing the showy part, very fun.

That is great! I wonder if it will make a comeback? Wouldn't that be fun for our kids?

Liquid magic is a good description: he doesn't appear to have an ounce of stiffness in his body! Maybe he's double jointed all over. :)

How cute and sweet they are.

I just LOVED this! The shag is one of my favorite dances to watch, and wish I could do! It's not easy, and these two kids are very creative and good.
Thanks...this made my day!

Crazy!! I was trying to watch his feet to see exactly what he was doing with them, but they just blended together and moved too fast!!
