How about testing the water?
We offer Basic Shag Lessons from time to time. Please refer to our website Calendar for upcoming Lesson dates.
Many Mondays when there isn't a Basic Lesson Series going on, a new move may be taught to all who are interested. This is usually done just prior to Open Shag Dancing. It is always good to enhance your basic moves and fun to try something new!
Many members of the OBX Shag Club also participate in Line Dancing lessons that are often offered to the public at the Baum Center in Kill Devil Hills and the Dare County Community Center in Manteo . These lessons are free and are great exercise. Watch our calendar for upcoming dates.
Remember, everyone is always welcome to join us Monday's at Kelly's (milepost 10.25). Hope to see you there real soon!!!
MORE THAN JUST A DANCE
According to the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI), dancing can:
Lower your risk of coronary heart disease,
Decrease blood pressure,
Help you manage your weight, and
Strengthen the bones of your legs and hips.
Dancing is a unique form of exercise because it provides the heart-healthy benefits of an aerobic exercise while also allowing you to engage in a social activity. This is especially stimulating to the mind, and one 21-year study published in the New England Journal of Medicine even found that dancing can reduce the risk of Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia in the elderly.
