The OD Shag Club Dance Team was invited to dance at the Vintage Market Days at the Myrtle Beach Sports Complex on February 28, 2020 from 1:00PM to 3:00PM in Myrtle Beach.

“Vintage Market Days® is an upscale vintage-inspired indoor/outdoor market featuring original art, antiques, clothing, jewelry, handmade treasures, home décor, outdoor furnishings, consumable yummies, seasonal plantings and a little more. Vintage Market Days® events are so much more than a flea market. Each Vintage Market Days® event is a unique opportunity for vendors to display their talents and passions in creative venues.”

The dance team performed the Shag Dance as shoppers walked by our booth.

Many shoppers stopped by our booth to inquire about the Dance and how they could get involved in the OD Shag Club.

We also had the opportunity to teach those individuals that where interested to learn. There was a young family that was interested in having her daughters look into junior shaggers.

We found out that there are many locals that haven’t heard about the Shag Dance and would like to have known more. We provided information via the OD Shag Club Website and hard copies of our Club. We gave handouts for instructions on the basic shag step.  

A special thank you to Trish Sessions for asking us to dance at this event. And thank you 94.9 The Surf for recognizing the OD Shag Club Dance Team on the radio from their remote.

Thank you to the OD Shag Club Dance Team who attended this event: Lou Martino, Ted Sobol, Barry Dyer, Callie White, Bill Millman, Diane Millman, Jim Livingston, Connie Livingston, Lori Setzer and John Setzer.

The OD Shag Club Dance Team was again invited to Del Web at Grand Dunes Active Adult Community in Myrtle Beach to perform and instruct the Shag Dance on February 24, 2020 at 6:00PM.

Since all the residents were in the last class on February 10, 2020, we moved right into the instruction of the dance.

The class was not as large as last class, so each couple had their own Dance Team instructor, which gave the residence a more personal touch.

We began where we left off from the last lesson. The instructors for the lesson was John and Lori Setzer. We reviewed and continued to teach the Start, Female Turn, and the Male Turn.

Thank you, Laureen Buckler, for having us back. And we are scheduled to meet twice next month.

Thank the members of the Dance Team who participated in this event:

Lou Martino, John and Lori Setzer, Bill and Diane Millman, Donna and Burnie Williams, Barbara Hooper, Kay and Mark Hughes and Connie Livingston.

We met the residents in the Back Room of Fat Harold’s in North Myrtle Beach. There were 20 residents that participated.

Linda Campbell gave a short introduction of the history of the Shag Dance. The Dance Team then demonstrated the Shag Dance.

We gave lessons to the group starting out with a slow basic moving into the start, a female turn, and a male turn. This group learned pretty fast. By the end of the lesson the group was dancing to music and where ready to hit the dance floor in the front.

It was a most productive evening for all the participants. Looking forward to the next lesson with this group.

Thank you, Cathy Jamiolkowski, a resident, at Bridgewater and a member of the Dance Team for setting up this event.

A special thanks to the members of the Dance Team who participated in this event: Julie Dyer, Barry Dyer, Lori Setzer, John Setzer, Kay   , Mark   , Barbara Hooper, Linda Campbell, Connie Livingston, Donna Williams, Burnie Williams, Diane Millman, Bill Millman, Rich Jamiolkowski, and Cathy Jamiolkowski.
