Annabelle and Nial_resize2
Annabelle Hale and Nial Bruce have been dancing shag since they started learning swing dancing. After their first lessons, their dance hobby slowly became a dance obsession that has lead them to competing with great results at Australian Jitterbug Championships and Australian Shag Camp, as well as learning from some of the greatest shag dancers the world has to offer. Annabelle and Nial are excited to share this dance they love in the hopes we will see more shag dancers out on the social floor.
