The Beach Shaggers of Birmingham are already hard at work planning another great Shag-a-Rama!

Here is a glimpse of a few of the details:

  • The party will start with a Sunset Social on Tuesday afternoon, followed by outdoor dancing at the ocean-side tent-covered dance floor until 11 PM.
  • Daily dancing outside, everyday at the tent-covered Dance floor - 11 AM to 11 PM + the Spacious ballroom will be open for four nights starting on Wednesday.
  • Progressive beginner Carolina Shag workshops: Three lessons for beginners starting at 10 AM on Thursday with Basic Shag I; Basic Shag II on Friday with a review on Saturday of the Basic Shag workshops from Thursday and Friday.
  • Three intermediate Shag lessons. Woody and Sara Oakley teaching on Thursday. Intermediate lessons with Steve and Kathy Day on Friday and Saturday.
  • Line dance workshop with Sherry Boatright Friday afternoon in the ballroom followed by an hour of line dancing.
  • Beginner Night Club 2-step workshop (using the alternative basic step) on Wednesday in the ballroom with Robin Haynes and Barbara Martin.
  • Club Line Dance Contest on Thursday afternoon and the Parade of Clubs Contest on Saturday afternoon. We will be giving away 2021 Shag-a-Rama tickets as first, second and third place prizes for both contests! One free Shag-a-rama 2021 ticket will be awarded to each placing club in each contest. (Tickets given to club president or authorized representative.) Judging will be based on enthusiasm and creativity.
  • Amateur Couples Shag Contest with first, second and third place CASH PRIZES Friday night in the ballroom! (No professional competitors, please.) You choose your own partner. Couples will dance at the same time while the judges make their decisions. The music to be played will be a variety of at least one fast and one slow song.

A printable pre-registration form is attached for your convenience.

Resort Reservations :

Be sure to refer to the booking ID 10W4HB for the special Beach Shaggers' rates when making your reservation. The rates will be honored for three days before and three days after Shag-a-Rama, so, why not plan a week-long vacation on the beach! Damage deposits have been waived again for 2020.

All units have a living room with TV, fully equipped kitchen, eating area, washer and dryer. All bedrooms have a TV and private bath. The deluxe units are larger and some have wrap-around balconies.

Towers I, II, and III and the two Mid-rise towers overlook the Gulf. The Villas are located across the street with easy access to on-site golf and tennis. They are, also, closest to the ballroom. Wherever you stay, everything is easily accessible with a free shuttle service or a short walk on the cross-over walkway.

There is a great on-site restaurant (Ocean’s Bar and Grill) open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. They have daily specials and they, also, offer a 10% discount on their regular menu item prices for Shag-a-Rama attendees! Montego Bay Seafood restaurant located across the street honors the 10% discount for the Shaggers, also.

Looking forward to seeing everyone in October!
