When And Where We Dance

Dance with Lessons -Wednesday 6:30-10:30pm @  Elk's Lodge  in Fairfax, VA

The Northern Virginia Shag is dedicated to the preservation of the Carolina Shag and Beach Music with emphasis on dance instruction. The club has around 250 active members and meets regularly on Wednesday nights at the ELKS Lodge, 8421 Arlington Blvd in Fairfax VA. The ELKS Lodge has a large open space with plenty of room for dancing and offers food and drink services. On a typical Wednesday night you will find all levels of dancers out on the floor enjoying the music played by a rotating list of DJs. They play beach music, R & B and current songs that are perfect for shagging. Dancing is normally from 6:30-7:30 pm and from 8:15- 10:30 pm. From 7:30- 8:15 pm the club provides free Shag beginner and intermediate lessons. Juniors are allowed in, under supervision, and allowed to stay and dance. Cover charge is $4.

Among the annual events the club sponsors each year are the Charlie and Jackie workshop/dance party in February and the Capital Shag Classic at the end of July. Please go to our club website www.nvshag.org to learn more about our club events, club history, registration, directions and general Shag dancing information.
