National Shagdance Championship Finals
The shag style of dancing traces its roots back to the Big Band era of the 1930s. The dance was immensely popular in locations around the United States over the years in different variations as well as with different names, but the moves are generally the same. This six-count partner dance includes a rather immobile upper body with the legs and hips moving rhythmically, and there is also usually some fancy footwork performed by serious shag dancers. People love watching shag dance almost as much as they love shag dancing themselves! Shag dancing continues to be a popular activity in North and South Carolina alike, and the National Shagdance Championship Finals in Myrtle Beach each year draws in huge audiences from around the country.
