The National Shag Dance Championships started in North Myrtle Beach in 1984 and is the longest continuously running shag dance contest in the United States.

The NSDC is held over two weekends each year with the Preliminaries (Qualifying Round) occurring near the end of January and the Finals in early March. If you enjoy watching dance shows on TV, then you should attend the NSDC and experience the excitement of a first class dance competition in person.
