The Monroe Shag Club (MSC) was founded by its charter members in 1987 and was later voted into the Association of Carolina Shag Clubs (ACSC) in 1988. The MSC became incorporated as a non-profit corporation on July 10, 2000. As members of the MSC we are dedicated and operate exclusively for non-profit purposes. The clubs objectives are to preserve the shag dance, promote beach music, and to support the community of Union County with our annual charity fundraiser, "Shaggin' For Dollars".
The Monroe Shag Club meets for business at 6:45 on the second Saturday of each month at the American Legion Post 27, located at 700 Sutherland Ave., in Monroe, NC. (Phone number 704-283-2633). The MSC has its dance parties the second Saturday night of each month from 7:30 PM until 11:30, at the American Legion Post 27.
