Shag “state dance” ordinance exhibited at Ocean Drive Beach & Golf Resort

An ordinance proclaiming the “Shag” as South Carolina’s official state dance will reside at the Ocean Drive Beach & Golf Resort for the next year.

Guests who stay at the resort will be able to see the bill on display in the lobby of the hotel.

Bubba Snow is a S.O.S. (Society of Shaggers) legend.

He also represented District 103 in the S.C. State House for 20 years. His bill, ratified in March 2001, officially proclaims the Shag as South Carolina’s state dance.
