Getting ready for 2018 performance season

Leave a comment

We’re planning our song line up with a few old favorites such as A Place In The Choir, Casey Jones, Everywhere I go, Screen Door, Brown County Breakdown and Wake Up Little Susie. Get Back To The Country will be just for our littles (well, 2 littles and a not-so-little-anymore). We’ll also be adding some new ones such as Lookin’ Up, Get On Board and one that mother-daughter duo Ellen & Cassidy choreographed the morning before demonstrating it to the group!

Coming back as an oldie but goodie is Cripple Creek. We’d like to add a few more oldies but goodies, but there’s been so many we can’t decide which ones! If you have a favorite Blast From The Past, be sure to let us know. It will help us get ready for our 25th Anniversary season in 2019!!!

WHAT is Clogging?

Leave a comment

Clogging is a truly American dance form that began in the Appalachian Mountains and now enjoys widespread popularity throughout tile (United States and around the world. As the Appalachians were settled in the mid 1700’s by the Irish, Scottish, English and Dutch-Germans, the folk dances of each area met and began to combine in an impromptu foot-tapping style, the beginning of clog dancing as we know it today. The word “Clog” comes from the Gaelic, and means “time”. Clogging is a dance that is done in time with the music -to the downbeat usually with the heel keeping rhythm.
