It was a beautiful Sunday May morning at a temperature of around 70 degrees. The OD Shag Club Dance Team was invited to dance for the Divas Marathon in NMB. This is one of the many events that the Dance Team can dance for the public and promote the Shag Dance to those who do not know what the Shag Dance really is.
We always have a great time at this event. We get to dance to the crowd and the runners as well as being able to interact with the runners.
The runners range from young to old, tall to short, slow to fast, runners and walkers, men and women, boys and girls, riders and amputees, proud Americans, those who fought for our country, those who are in great shape and those who required assistance, and different nationalities all running for the same cause. One runner came all the way from California to run in this race.
Yes we danced in the street encouraging the runners to do their best. If you look close you will be able to see members of the OD Shag Club as runners. Also look for Howie Thompson the author of the book “Fat Harold The Legendary King of Shag.
Thanks to Jim and Donna for providing the music. And of course thanks to the OD Shag Club Dance Team members who came out at 7 AM to dance in this event. We danced from 7AM to 9AM.
Dance Team Members who participated:
Linda Campbell, John Dryden, Joe Ferlauto, Lenny Gardner, Barbara Hooper, Cathy and Rich Jamiolkowski, Susan Male, Lou Martino, Cherie Patalik, and Diane Tindall.
