NCCA hosts a three-day convention each spring,
held somewhere in Northern California. This is the
biggest event of the year and is a chance for all
cloggers to learn some new dances, experience the best
teachers in the area and often a special guest
instructor, obtain clogging supplies, watch some great
performances, and just see old and new clogging
friends. NCCA has been holding these conventions every
year since 1984.
NCCA Convention is Virtual and Online

2019 NCCA Convention with
Guest Instructor Andy Howard
Dancers at the 36th annual convention in Sacramento
(May 31 and June 1) had a fun time with featured guest
instructor, Andy Howard from Georgia. He taught us
lively and fun dances and even got most people to do a
mixer. Many other instructors from Northern and
Southern California, Oregon, Washington, Canada, and
even Australia kept the dancers on their toes and busy
for the two days. I heard nothing but happy and
satisfied comments. Many thanks to all the committee
members for putting on a fabulous weekend!
2018 NCCA Convention was
The Barnyard Boogie!
What a great time everyone had at convention again
this year. From the workshops, exhibition show,
dancing, instructors, vendors, the convention
facilities, and most of all, the wood floors to dance
on, it was a great weekend. Above are some of the
dancers on Friday night.
Oh boy! Pictures are now online

dances into one hour. Believe it or not, there were a
