This is a funky new styling of swing dancing that will integrate seemlesly into Lindy Hop, West Coast Swing, East Coast Swing, etc. The root forms of this styling come from Charleston and St. Louis Shag (AKA: Kenny Shag or Speed Shag).

I would like to dedicate this web site to Kenny Wetzel who was a friend and taught me St. Louis Shag many years ago.

I am sure there are also many other acceptable paths to this common goal other than what I have defined here. I would like to see lesson structures created by others that make full use of the Universal Unit System (TM).
