Largest shag dance in SC certified as record

  • Follow Latest News

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. — It’s an official world record. The 744 people who danced the shag at the same time last fall in North Myrtle Beach have set the record for the largest Carolina shag dance.

The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reports that the organizers of the event received an e-mail this week from the compilers of the Guinness Book of World Records.

Anne Henry of Jacksonville, Fla., organized the attempt during the Society of Stranders’ Fall Migration last Sept. 24. Nearly three times the number needed to land in the record books for the “Largest Carolina Shag Dance” participated in the event.

Guinness officials said at least 250 shaggers had to dance for at least five minutes to set the record.

The shag is the state dance of both Carolinas.
