The Junior Cyclone
March 24-26, 2017
The 2017 Junior Cyclone DRAFT schedule is done. Click HERE to view it.
The Junior Cyclone will be held in Mooresville, NC at the old skating rink facility (now the Amvets building). The facility has a hardwood floor, and is a great place to have a dance event of this magnitude.
This event is designed to introduce shag dancing and shag music to those under the age of 21, and to enhance the skills of those who already know how to shag. It's a great way for the kids to meet new friends, build confidence, and have a lot of fun, too.
We recognize that not all kids are interested in shagging. But once they see all ages having fun and enjoying themselves, they will want to participate. Shag is an easy dance for kids to learn. After experiencing this event, they may want to continue taking lessons, become part of junior competitions or even join one of the competitive junior shag dance teams!
Please Note: Adults are welcome to attend to watch the instruction, demonstrations, competition and other activities, and to participate during the many hours of open dancing. Of course we welcome adult helpers and adult sponsors, too.
This Event Will Include:
FREE shag dance instruction by pro dancers and competitive junior shaggers
FREE dance demonstrations by the instructors
FREE dance demonstration by the award winning Junior Shag Dance Team
FREE shag line dance instruction
FREE fun mixed doubles contest
FREE photo booth pictures
Food will be available on site all weekend.
More surprises and additions will be included.

We will have various types of food and beverages available all weekend. On Saturday, we'll have hotdogs and chips available for lunch. For dinner, hotdogs and pizza will be available. Each and every food or beverage item will only cost $1 each all weekend. The idea is to make this very, very inexpensive for all attendees.
All attendees will have a lanyard with a color-coded name badge. White is for non-competitive and rookie juniors. Yellow is for competitive juniors. Green is for adults. Blue is for DJ's, Instructors, and the event Chairs. All juniors will be given a "dance card" with a goal of dancing with one person from each color that they have NEVER danced with before. They will then turn in their card for a chance to win a prize.
We'll work in some fun, shag related games during the weekend with prizes. We'll have an ongoing drawing contest (contestants will draw Junior Cyclone cloud people or similar items that may be used in our future promotions), a photo booth, an "I could dance to that" song contest where juniors will submit a song not normally shagged to, a "Simon Says" shag step contest or possibly another game.
We've got a photo booth there all weekend. Take a fun picture of just yourself, or with a bunch of your friends. You will get the photo there, and we will also email a copy of it to you after the event is over!
Finally, we'll have some Junior DJ time. If you have played shag music before, bring your tunes. If you never have, but always wanted to try, we'll have some instruction and play time for you.
Note: No smoking (including E-cigarettes) or alcoholic beverages allowed in this event.
