If you love to dance or just enjoy watching it, then you can't miss the annual National Shag Dance Championship Finals in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Come out and see some of the best swing dancers in the country perform at the longest running shag contest in the United States!

There are several divisions for which novices and professionals can enter including junior divisions, a senior division, a professional division, a non-professional division, and a master's division. The categories for which they will be judged on include execution, degree of difficulty, smoothness, repertoire, and togetherness. For the master's division only the judging is based on style, smoothness, showmanship, and togetherness.

There are many things to do and see near the dance competition as well. For instance there are free exhibitions at the nearby Colonial Mall. While you are at the mall enjoy a fun day of shopping at a variety of stores and restaurants including Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World, American Eagle Outfitters, Victoria's Secret, Baja Bistro, and a lot more. On the last day of the shag championships you can also swing by the St. Patrick's Day Parade and party where you can enjoy some green beer, great Irish cuisine, and fun entertainment. And of course, the miles of beaches in Myrtle Beach are always a fun place to visit with many activities to enjoy.

There are several great places to stay near Studebaker's where the National Shag Dance Championship Finals will be held. Some of the closest hotels include the Sheraton Myrtle Beach, Best Western the Carolinian Beach Resort, Best Western Grand Strand Inn and Suites, the Comfort Suites, and many more.

We were treated with great hospitality and we had an incident that happen with our room, but the staff were great in accommodating us with another room. It was a great place to stay.

Since we drove down, we got there 2 days earlier than our reservation. They were kind enough to give us the SAME room that we were going to have in the beginning, so we did not have to move. We had a slight prob. with the fridge, but we went out and came back to find another one in it's place. The staff goes above and beyond to make you feel very welcome. I want to go back there again....soon.
