Shim Sham Challenge

We are challenging you with the Shim Sham!

Shim Sham dance

Hello everyone,

We hope you are all in high spirits and staying safe. We miss everyone very much and are truly grateful for our virtual dancing experience together. It's not the same but it is close enough 👌

Since week one of our virtual school, Chris and I were thinking, how we could possibly create a fun and relatively easy, step by step dance for ALL at TBS Warsaw to follow... something with a PURPOSE and with an END RESULT in mind, something that can be experienced TOGETHER once we are all back together at school...

So here it is 

We would like to CHALLENGE you ALL! 

Yes! Everyone... students and their families, teachers... anyone who is up for a challenge in ourTBS Warsaw community!

We are challenging you with the Shim Sham 👌

The Shim Sham is a positive and uniting community dance. All over the world, people have their own versions but when they get together, the basic steps we will teach you are all the same.

We all aim at learning something new during these challenging times. Maybe we can look at the Shim Sham as something we can all learn together? Call us hopeless romantics, but how cool would it be to show and enjoy it together? Maybe at our first assembly back... or any other time?

Here’s what it normally looks like on a larger scale:

So who is up for a challenge? 

We are inviting ALL of you for a fun ride and a somewhat unexpected, yet positive learning “something new” experience.

We don't need to hear from you... we would love some photos or videos of your "work in progress" ideally by 29/04/2020 - INTERNATIONAL DANCE DAY so let's celebrate appropriately 😁


Until we dance together...

STEP 1 you will find 👉 here 👈 A comprehensive breakdown of first sequence with no music just yet.

We will be adding the next steps in due course (so as not to overwhelm anyone 😉) to our TBS Dance YouTube channel, so be sure to subscribe. 

Have fun,

Jo & Chris Ernest

The Dance Team
