The New Year could bring you a way to lose weight, travel the world and have fun! Cripple Creek Clogger's Founder and Director Steve Cates said, "Our first teaching session will be at 4:00 o'clock Sunday afternoon, January 14, 2018 at the Smyrna Senior Citizens Center, 100 Raikes Street. 100 Everyone's are invited to attend this FREE event."
The folk-dance troupe is in it's fifty-first year of keeping alive old-time Appalachian square dance traditions. Current members come from Rutherford, Cannon, Warren, Davidson, Dickson, and Bedford counties.
Cates noted, "It began as a 4-H Share-the-Fun activity at Kittrell School in 1967. The dancers continue to perform, as well as teach. They represented the U.S. in the International Folk Festival in Zagreb, Croatia in July, 2017, accompanied by Sarah & The Romans, a traditional bluegrass band headquartered near the festival site."
