The Carolina Shag is a partner swing dance, done primarily to beach music, which originated in the Carolinas in the 1940’s. The Shag is a wholesome activity the entire family can enjoy, providing exercise and healthy social interaction for a lifetime. Although concentrated in the south, Shag Clubs can be found throughout the United States.
