Charlie Womble and Jackie McGee have been dance partners for close to
30 years, and when you watch them work their magic it’s clear they were
meant to be partners. Since 1981, they’ve competed in over 300
competitions together, going undefeated for a dozen years. They won the
National Shag Dance overall competition nine out of its first 10 years,
and were the only couple who won the title for seven consecutive years.
Despite being in their 60s, they can still out boogie the younger folks.
In the following clip, Charlie and Jackie impress the crowd — and on
the internet — with their shag routine at ShagAtlanta 2013 ACSC’s Summer
Workshop. Dancing to the tune “Be Myself Again” by Eric Benet, the
couple are so fluid in their movements, it’s captivating to watch. They
have a way of pulling off a routine that’s both fun and classy, with
just the right touch of sexiness.
