Shagging is a way of life at the beach. In these parts, that means dancing, and there's no better place to witness the art than at the 37th Annual National Shag Dance Championships, to be held March 12-14 at The Spanish Galleon. The competition, which began in Myrtle Beach in 1984, is the country's longest continuously running shag dance contest and has won two Feather Awards - dance's equivalent of the Oscars - as the best swing dance event in the United States. Come see how the experts get down.
