ABOUT US

 

SINCE 2003, THE BRUSHY MOUNTAIN SHAG CLUB HAS BEEN PROVIDING ACTIVITIES FOR MEMBERS WHICH PROMOTE, PRESERVE, AND PROVIDE EDUCATION ABOUT THE CAROLINA SHAG DANCE AND ITS HISTORY.  MEMBERS ENJOY OPPORTUNITIES TO LEARN THE DANCE OR IMPROVE THEIR EXISTING SKILLS. AS A MEMBER IN GOOD STANDING OF THE ASSOCIATION OF CAROLINA SHAG CLUBS, THE CLUB PROVIDES OPPORTUNITIES TO GET TO KNOW AND SOCIALIZE WITH FELLOW SHAGGERS AND THE SHAGGING COMMUNITY. WE ALSO PROVIDE OPPORTUNITIES TO VISIT WITH OTHER LOCAL SHAG CLUBS AND OTHER SHAG AND BEACH MUSIC EVENTS.  LONG TIME MEMBERS WILL TELL YOU THAT THE SHAG COMMUNITY IS MORE LIKE FAMILY THAN A SOCIAL ORGANIZATION.

IN ADDITION TO PROVIDING AND DANCING AND SOCIAL OPPORTUNITIES TO THE SHAG FAMILY,  BRUSHY MOUNTAIN SHAG CLUB ALSO SPONSORS ACTIVITIES WHICH GIVE BACK TO OUR LOCAL COMMUNITY THROUGH FUNDRAISING EVENTS. EACH YEAR IN NOVEMBER WE SPONSOR A SILENT AUCTION TO RAISE FUNDS FOR SEVERAL LOCAL CHARITIES. WE ALSO PERIODICALLY SPONSOR SMALLER ACTIVITIES WHERE FUNDS ARE RAISED FOR LOCAL CHARITIES AND SHAG ASSOCIATION AFFILIATED CHARITIES.
