Do you have friends that don’t know Carolina Shag?

This event offers a great opportunity to learn Shag! If you have friends that don’t know how to shag, please encourage them to come and learn. We have four Carolina Shag workshops lined up! We have a one hour beginner basic shag lesson with Cliff and Patsy Capps scheduled on Thursday, followed by another one hour workshop of basic variations and simple patterns with Woody and Sara Oakley. (This class promises to be good review for longtime Shaggers, too.) Then, more advanced classes are scheduled on Friday and Saturday with Steve and Kathy Day.
New for this year:


The line dance workshop will be followed by an hour of open line dancing in the ballroom!

Professional Photography services will be offered by Highlights Photography.

Dancing to Gospel Hour at the tent pavilion

Are you coming to Shag-A-Rama without a dance partner?

We are trying something new this year. Everyone checking in at registration without a dance partner will be offered a lei to wear when dancing. (This is, of course, optional.) The leis will make it easier for everyone to identify the people that need a dance partner. So, ladies, don’t be shy, if you see a guy with a lei around his neck, ask him to dance!
Prepare your club for the Showcase of Clubs Line Dance Performances and the Parade of Clubs !
Club Line Dance Performances

Each club will have an opportunity to show off its favorite line dance on Friday afternoon at the tent pavilion. Don’t be left out!

To encourage participation, we are going to give away four Shag-A-Rama 2020 tickets! One Shag-A-Rama 2020 ticket will be awarded to each of the first four clubs to contact Sherry Boatright at duckcreek@bellsouth.net or 256-352-5080 with the name of the line dance and music for their club’s demonstration to be added to the lineup.

The Shag-A-Rama 2020 tickets will be awarded to club presidents or authorized representatives after the Line Dance Showcase at Shag-A-Rama 2019. Clubs can use the tickets however they want to. For example, they could be raffled or used for a bonus drawing in a 50/50 drawing. So, hurry, plan your Line Dance performance, contact Sherry and win a free Shag-A-Rama 2020 ticket for your Club!
