Welcome to the Northern California Cloggers Association, Inc. web site. This is your place for information on clogging in Northern California and surrounding areas.


Clogging, or clog dancing, is a lively, foot-stomping dance which originated in the Southern Appalachian Mountains. The settlers to those mountains brought their own steps and rhythms, which melded into what we now call clogging. Modern cloggers dance to all types of music. Clogging clubs meet regularly to learn new steps and dances. Teams may also perform precision routines or participate in clogging competitions.

The Northern California Cloggers Association was formed in March 1982 to promote clogging and communication among all cloggers in Northern California and neighboring states. Membership is made up of teachers as well as dancers who love and support clogging. NCCA sponsors workshops and dances, seminars for instructors and clogging leaders, and also puts on an annual 3-day convention in the spring of each year. The Association's award-winning newsletter, the Clog-A-Gram, is published quarterly and includes the minutes of each quarterly membership meeting, cue sheets for clogging dances, articles on clogging, club news, information on clogging in other areas, useful hints, information on where to clog and upcoming events.
