From Staff Reports

The Mountain Shag Club recently elected a new board for 2018 that, for the first time in the club’s 30-history, is all-female. The new board took over effective Jan. 1.

Formed in November 1988, the club claims more than 100 members — mostly from Buncombe and Henderson counties, but with some members and guests traveling from South Carolina and Tennessee — and even farther away.

The club meets weekly for free dance lessons, followed by open dancing of the Carolina shag (the official dance of North and South Carolina) and to socialize.

Dance lessons begin at 6:30 p.m.Tuesdays and a disc jockeys plays music for dancing until about 9:30 p.m. in the 550 Tavern & Grill at the Clarion Inn/Aiport at 550 Airport Road in Fletcher.

The club’s stated purpose is to “bring together people for fellowship and entertainment” and to “promote the revival and preservation of beach music, shagging and other related activities.”
