Our events consist of a weekend of divisional competition,
food, fun, friendships, workshops, awards and prizes
primarily throughout North Carolina, South Carolina
and Virginia. We encourage, promote, and share the
love of the Carolina Shag with all age groups.
If you are interested in being a part of our family
at a competitive level or you want to come and support
your favorite dancers, check our website for schedules
and begin to enjoy the dance, the people and the music.
Our primary objective has been and is to provide contests

outlined in the rules and regulations established by
While our organization can only recognize divisional
wins and points associated with CSA sanctioned contests,
our members individually choose to participate in
a variety of other shag related events. As an organization
our members support all shag related functions. We
donate money each year to the Shaggers’ Hall
of Fame Foundation and other charities.
Our desire and commitment is to represent the CSA
dancers in the best possible way. We wish all members
to be proud of their association. The benefits of membership
include well organized contests with divisional integrity
operated according to the sanctioning guidelines approved
by the dancers, regular communications and updates,
utilizing news letters, email, and website, and an
annual awards banquet and party complete with Pro points
money, points recognition, and special awards. Fellowship
and camaraderie and being part of a group with common
goals that is recognized in and outside the shag community
are additional and sometimes overlooked benefits.
