Last weekend we attended the Shagging dance at the pier.
The South Carolina State Dance is the Shag
We will need our energy! ha ha LOL
Making our way to the end of the long pier....to the dance. Fun to be underneath the big bridge!
Stopping to enjoy the sunset!

Shaggin Grand Nationals 2014
The band (Sneakers) kept the dance floor PACKED all night long. Nothing really beats dancing outside, under the stars! Good music, good times!

Fun to watch!-another great couple!
It was one of the most beautiful nights I can remember in a long time.......we didn't even get hot dancing........there was a constant breeze going to keep us cool.
I'm pretty sure the shag dance originated around the 1940s. Kids in the 50s and 60s did it to 'beach music'. Its a very relaxed dance with the legs looking like limber noodles but the dance steps very precise. Today we have shag clubs all over our state--Greenville, Charleston, Columbia, Sumter, Spartanburg, and of course Conway, North Myrtle Beach and Myrtle Beach.
my friend over at "Lawn Tea" remembers about the fun times of shagging too! Click below to read her fun memories! Looks like her and I both have been enjoying good old fashioned beach music today. It really is happy music.
