2019 SWTS Winners

Thank you to all of our Shagging With the Stars contestants who helped us raise money for the Beth Mitchell Memorial Scholarship.  This year’s winners of the fun charity event were Carla Schuessler and Dr. Jason Bell.  We appreciate all of your support!

Rule Change for 2018 Contest

The Executive Committee of the NSDC has a new rule. Effective for the 2018 SHAG NATIONALS competition.

Any Overall Junior Champion must enter the Professional Division once they are 21 years of age (or aged out of the Junior II Division). They now must bypass the Non-Pro Division and go straight to the Pro Division.  We know we may hear that if the rule was changed earlier some runner-ups would have been champions, but feel now is the right time to make this change to encourage more Non-Pro dancers.

The Non-Pro Division was established as a step-up division for beginners, amateurs and novice dancers. Winning the Junior Overall is a much different level of dance ability. In fact, in the past some Overall Junior champions chose to skip the Non- Pro – Michael and Leann Norris, Brenner Goree, and Autumn Jones.

We hope this will sincerely add more dancers to the Non-Pro Division and look forward to the Preliminaries on January 26-27, 2018 and the Finals on March 8-10, 2018 – the 35th Nationals.
