    - ​The Dean Collins version of the Shim Sham is based on the original Shim Sham with more intricate footwork, specific "Dean" styling, and additional steps that extend the routine significantly. Dean Collins was the most influential swing dancer on the West Coast and played an essential role in bringing the New York/New Jersey style of swing dancing to California. This routine has become a staple dance amongst today's Balboa dancers. You will need to know Frankie Manning's version of the Shim Sham in order to take this class.
