Rock Hill boy vies to be best young Shagger in US

Mar 22, 2010 12:10:00 AM - thestate.com
At the Shag dance clubs at Ocean Drive and North Myrtle Beach - usually populated by an older crowd in their leather-soled loafers that slide and glide - the gray-haired ladies scream during the contests.

They line up afterward for a chance to dance South Carolina's official state dance, the Shag, with ol' "Rubber Legs."

The dances come early, before the bar opens and youngsters are banned, because ol' Rubber Legs - with his signature "Toe Stand" that makes the ladies swoon - is still in the fifth grade at Rock Hill's Belleview Elementary.

Parker Wade - all 80 pounds of him, with freckles that cover his face - obliges all the ladies who request a dance from his vantage point of 4 feet 9 inches tall and 11 years of age.

"I love to Shag," said Parker. "Love it."
