North Myrtle Beach Donation 2014

The OD Shag Club board in keeping with our goal to promote the Shag decided to donate a 28” TV/ DVD combo and a shag dance video to the North Myrtle Beach Historical Museum. The museum had a corner dedicated to Shag Dancing but nothing to really explain what it was. Monica Powell worked with Chuck Stokes of Stage Videos to produce a video during our November party at Duck’s. The video included all ages and stages of the dance, as well as shag history and music. Our demo dance team, four Jr. Shaggers, other members of the shag club and The National Shag Dance Champion entry were all featured. Monica Powell, Wendy Schultz, Karen Young, Peggy Christie and Paulette Broadway made the presentation to Jenean Todd, museum Director.
