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.

The North Myrtle Beach Chamber reached out to the North Myrtle Beach Museum to see if the OD Shag Club Dance Team could perform a demonstration of the Shag Dance during the SC Governor’s Conference held in North Myrtle Beach representatives from all over SC will be in attendance.

The Dance Team was excited and honored to be asked to be a part of this Conference and inform South Carolina of the Shag Dance.

The Dance Team was asked to perform at first, but when asked if anyone wanted to learn the basic shag step well, there was 100% participation. So, we were able to teach within the time allotted.

We had 20 participants who were very enthusiastic and willing to learn the basic steps. Thank you for all those who participated.  

Thank you, Cathy Altman, Executive Director North Myrtle Beach Museum for inviting the OD Shag Club Dance Team to perform at your event.

Thanks to the Dance Team members who took out time from their busy schedules to promote the Shag Dance: John and Lori Setzer, Mark and Kay Hughes, Lou Martino, Linda Campbell, Barry Dyer, Mike and Bonnie Bejzak, Rich and Cathy Jamiolkowski.
