Dance Challenge:
Learn the Shim Sham!

The Shim Sham was a tap routine choreographed by Willie Bryant & Leonard Reed in the 1920's. It is still danced today at swing gatherings throughout the world.  I've toned down the tapping to make it a little more user friendly for beginners. Enjoy the challenge and have fun dancing. Looking forward to all of us dancing it together some day!
