The Ellen Taylor Foundation for Junior Shaggers (ETFJS) was founded in 2007 by Mrs. Ellen Taylor. The purpose of the ETFJS is to remove financial barriers that prevent those under 21 from learning and participating in the shag dance. Examples of this include providing free dance shoes, funding workshops, and providing meal, lodging, and gas vouchers for shag dance events such as Junior SOS at North Myrtle Beach. Our club was was proud to present a $500.00 donation to Ellen Taylor Foundation.
