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.

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.
