Ashe County Real EstateAt Century 21 Heritage Realty, not only are we one of the top Ashe County Real Estate companies, but we take pride in where we work. We love the High Country and its surroundings. The rolling hills and remote nature of Ashe County make this area perfect for calling home. It’s no surprise that we love to get out and have fun in our home town. Boondocks Brewing is a fantastic place to hang out and relax after work. Lucky for us, every Monday leading up to the “Beach Bash,” Boondocks will be holding Shag Dance lessons.

“Shag” style dancing is also known as “Carolina Shag.” The term is thought to have been coined along the beaches of North Carolina and South Carolina in the 1940’s. Some know Shag dancing to have originated in Carolina Beach, North Carolina. While that’s a pretty far stretch from our Ashe County Real Estate office, we’re not opposed to pretending like the beach is at our back door for one night.

The dance lessons are split into two levels, beginner and intermediate. The beginner lessons begin at 6:00pm and go til 7:00pm. The intermediate lessons begin at 7:00pm and run til 8:00pm. The price for lessons is $5 per person. If you need a little liquid encouragement to help you get out on the dance floor, there will be a cash bar on scene.

Boondocks Brewing is a great venue, located in the heart of downtown West Jefferson. We recommend sticking around after the lessons for a nice cold brew and a fantastic dinner. We look forward to seeing the crowd that comes out for the dance lessons and hope to learn a few moves ourselves.

See you there!
