Cloggers had a blast at the 31st Annual NCCA Convention the last weekend of April. A huge Thank You to all the instructors for donating their time, the committee for putting on a great convention, and to the dancers for supporting NCCA.


Plan to attend the Brittany's Hope Benefit Concert on May 18 in San Francisco. Not only will you -- and your friends -- be able to watch a cool clogging show, but you'll be helping out a young dancer. See more here.

The next NCCA Quarterly is the Doug Chin Clogging Classic hosted by Aftershock on January 12th, which will be a special fundraiser to help with Richard Willyard's recovery. If you are unable to make it to the workshop but still want to donate to his recovery fund, use this secure link to go to YouCaring.com. Here's the flier for the workshop.

Not only is the 2011 NCCA Convention now history, but so are March Madness (cloggers' version) and the Doug Chin Clogging Classic workshops. We've had a lot of great new and old clogging dances taught at the workshops so far in 2011. Dancers had a great time at all. To see some pictures from these events, be sure to check out the NCCA Photos Page.



Congratulations to Janice Hanzel for receiving the 2009 Lucy Johnson Award from C.L.O.G. at the National CLOG Convention in November.This award is presented to an outstanding contributor to the clogging community. Kathey Wilson from Alaska was also a recipient this year. In 2008 Lois Elling (CA) and Anne Mills (WA and AZ) were presented the award.



Many dancers had a terrific time dancing to a host of classic clogging dances and celebrating Doug Chin's life at the Chin-Dig in Belmont on Sept. 12. Doug's family attended, the Barbary Coast Cloggers performed, and eight cuers kept the dancers moving. It was a fun and bittersweet evening, but mostly fun. Thanks Doug for your inspiration!



The NCCA STEP DICTIONARY is now available on CD in pdf format.

Now you can access thousands of clogging steps by name, description, cross references, and more. This valuable tool is good for dancers, choreographers, and teachers. The CD includes all the steps in previous editions and updates. Get yours now. Note: NCCA members get a special discount. Join NCCA to take advantage of this.



SACRAMENTO RIVER CATS Jan Tuller Foundation Day

Groups! Your group can attend the Sacramento River Cats baseball game against the Portland Beavers on August 23. If you sell 50 or more tickets for your group, friends, and family, you can perform in the first Annual Jan Tuller Foundation pre-game clogging party in the Foul Ball Patio! Have a fun day at the game, meet with fellow cloggers, and support a worthy cause, too. More information here. (Hey! You Oregon cloggers! How about a friendly gathering and some rivalry cheering.)



NCCA 2009 CONVENTION A FUN WEEKEND!

Thanks to Kellee, Richard, and the committee for putting on a fun weekend of clogging workshops, dancing, exhibtions, and more. In keeping with the RECYCLED theme, many great old clogging dances were taught. These were dances that were popular at one time (and maybe still are), but many recent dancers never had the chance to learn. These oldies but goodies were popular at the workshop. Along with the oldies, many new dances were taught as well. You can check out what was taught from the program (Friday, Saturday Day, Saturday Night, Sunday) and also see many photos of the activities.

BLOSSOM HILL CLOGGERS CELEBRATE 30 YEARS!

The Blossom Hill Cloggers of San Jose, California, recently celebrated 30 years of dancing. Lois Elling has been their instructor since the start of their first class in April, 1977. The celebration included a dinner, dancing with several guest cuers, games, memorabilia and just catching up with old friends. A good time was had by all!

For more information on the club and to see photos of the event, check out the Blossom Hill Cloggers' webpage.
