Club Lessons & Schedule
The club is a Social and Dance Club and many people who stop by on Thursday Evenings, do not know much about dancing or the Carolina Shag in particular. At 7:00 club members will teach the Shag Basic and a Female Turn so that anyone can be on the floor and start to enjoy themselves in 15 minutes or so. The Golden Isles Facebook Page will keep you up to date with the most current class information. Click on the Facebook logo below to go right to it!

Golden Isles Shag Club ~ Shag Icons !!!
The Golden Isles Shag Club has a new Shag Icon - Club DJ Wayne Bennett. The Association of Carolina Shag Clubs (ACSC) votes once a year to make this coveted award to indiviuals who they think best epitomize the Dance and the Culture of Shag within the 100+ clubs.
GISc now has 2 shag icons in our club and you know them both well, they are your Dance Instructors, Club Ambassadors ~ Husband & Wife, Wayne and Judy Bennett. Judy was elected a Shag Icon in 2008, and if you are up in NMB for the Spring Safari, I know you will see both of them sitting in the back of a convertible during the Saturday Parade.
