The OD Shag Club Dance Team was honored to be invited by Mike and Ginger Parnell to dance for their “Band Fest” at The Shoe Center in North Myrtle Beach SC for June SOS 2021.   Despite temperatures reaching into the 80’s (with heat indexes into the 90’s), the dance team was there to encourage the crowd to get up and dance to the fabulous bands playing for the week.  Each day the bands were introduced and then Marlisa Small opened the event with our National Anthem,

“The Star-Spangled Banner” and everyone respectfully joined in.  The Bands for the week and crowd pleasers were:

The ODSC Dance Team was asked to give a brief history and to demonstrate the Shag Dance at the North Myrtle Beach Museum on September 08, 2020 at 9:30am. by Cathy Altman, Executive Director.

With the restrictions and safety precautions due to Covid-19 it was recommended that only two members of the dance team provide the information being requested. All safety measures were taken. Each person that was a part of the event wore a mask, practiced social distancing and there was plenty of hand sanitizer made available.

The group represented the NMB Chamber’s Marketing Agency. Our local President and CEO of the North Myrtle Beach Chamber of Commerce Cheryl Kilday was accompanied by three young ladies from the Miles Partnership, the Creative and Marketing company for the North Myrtle Beach Chamber out of Florida.

Linda Campbell gave a 15-minute talk on the history of the Shag Dance and the impact that it has on our community.

Following her talk, we demonstrated the Shag Dance. Then we taught the group the basic steps. The group picked up the steps very easily and were very enthusiastic in wanting to learn.

After the lessons, we were asked if we could go to Florida and teach the Shag Dance in their community. Well….

I would also like to recognize the NMB Museum and the Executive Director, Cathy Altman. She has always asked the ODSC Dance Team to come to the Museum and promote and preserve the Shag. If you have not been to the Museum, take the time to visit. There is a wealth of information there. It’s free and worth the trip.

Thank you, Cathy, for the invitation and thank you for keeping the Shag alive.

Thanks to Linda Campbell and Lou Martino for taking the time to take part in this event.
