National Shag Dance Championships

Myrtle Beach & The Grand Strand

Myrtle Beach & The Grand Strand

The National Shag Dance Championships started in Myrtle Beach in 1984 and is the longest continuously running shag dance contest in the United States. Past winners have performed on Good Morning America, CBS This Morning and at NBA games, to name a few.

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.
