Swing on through to join The Club for two great Shag workshops with Jim Minty and fun social dancing with DJ Jim! Also get late-breaking news on Facebook!

See the history of South Carolina’s Shag dance and read more on Southern Living: “The Shag is often linked to the term “swing dancing,” though they are not to be lumped into the same broad category—rather the Shag, specifically the Carolina Shag, has been called the “swing dance of the South.” Now, we Southerners are bringing it back in style. It’s the dance of choice at sorority formals, with bands playing loud and quick. And it’s a surefire win at Southern weddings and parties, getting everyone on their feet and off their behinds (no one wants to throw a dull party down here). The last thing we want is for anyone to be left out, so we’re letting you in on the hint—do yourself a favor and practice a little “one-and-two” later.“

Please RSVP and volunteer on Sunday, March 3rd here. Check Facebook for late-breaking updates!
