The Stars & Stripes Cloggers began to dance as a team in 1983. The group began as a square dance clogging team with men and women couples dancing in 4-couple squares. As the men moved or quit, the team has had to evolve and change, but the focus remains the same: support each other in good times and bad, have fun and bring some fun to others' lives, and cherish the heritage. Many of the members are teachers,so another goal of the team is to encourage kids to clog and help them develop healthy mental and physical lifestyles. Several of our members are home-schooled and we welcome the chance to interact with them and their families.
