New Schedule Starts this Week!

September is already here, and with it, our new schedule. We are getting right into things this week. Check out the class schedule below. If you have any questions about anything, let me know. boisecloggers at hotmail.com

If you're wondering when we're going to get new costumes- we're going to be talking about that this month. After the dust settles and we see who is in which class, I'll be getting information out to you about what we're looking at for costumes this year.

I can tell you already- no sewing. If we have to custom make anything, we'll be hiring it out.

Also new this year, we're going to be working on a new dance that will involve many of our classes. This dance is for performances and gives several levels a chance to dance together on stage.

If you haven't ordered a solos DVD and still want one, come to the studio to get the License Number for our group. You can order the DVD online.

Those of you wanting new split sole clogging shoes, please contact Bonnie Steele at backstageinc@gmail.com

For regular shoes, we will still have a selection here at the studio to try on. We can order the $30 shoes for you. Taps are $16 and we'll put them on for you.

United Way -August 27 Show

Hi everybody -

We were invited to perform for the United Way kick-off event called the Flapjack Feed. Because this is an event that will have local celebrities and politicians, there may be some wiggle room w/ start & stop times, but most likely everything should run on schedule.

9:35 am - 10:00 am Boise Cloggers

August 27

Performance Order:

1- Pole Position
2- Hawaiian Rollercoaster
3- Let’s Get it Started
4- Numa Numa
5- Other Side
6-Freestyle
7- South
8- Sweet
9- Scatman
10-I Want Candy
11- Never Been
12- A Cappella

The event will be at the Boise Centre on the Grove. Please be there, in front of the stage by 9:10 AM. The stage and event is outside.

Because this is only a 25 minute performance, we are including the Beginner class- Hawaiian Rollercoaster & I Want Candy, the Intermediate Team- Other Side & Scatman, the Advanced/Championship Team and the Adult team.

We will not have time for solos at this show, but I may include a Freestyle. This is a one costume show- so red tops for those in the Adv/Champ & Adult teams.

This event will involve a great number of the community, and therefore, we are hoping for a really profesional performance from all of our dancers. It is an honor to be invited.

Thanks for all your help!

Give it a try

I figured out that I'm better at blogging than website managing. I still have the website, and I'm going to try to keep it updated, but I wanted to give a blog a try.

The coolest part of blogging is keeping it fresh. Got a great photo, shoot me an e-mail. I am looking for some action shots. The thing I like most is having the ability to keep things updated and posting photos.

But I rarely take pictures at shows. I'm too busy dancing or directing. I need you help! If you've got pictures, please please share!!

And, if you're not familiar with blogging, at the bottom of each post you can leave a comment. This is a great way to quickly communicate with the rest of the studio and me. Anything you don't want the rest of the world to read you should still e-mail. Yes, my regular e-mail address is the one you should use. Don't use the e-mail on the profile, I only check it every other week.

And now, for the rest of the story.

So far I don't have any shows for July. I know. Weird. I visited the Meridian Farmers Market yesterday and found that they don't have an area for dancing or an audience. They have moved the whole venue to a little side street. It's narrow. There was a vocalist with a guitar, but that's about all they can handle this year. As things stand, it doesn't look like we'll be there.

Here's what's on the schedule for August:

August 1, Saturday, Army National Guard, plan to be at the base by 3:00, our show starts at 3:30. This show will be for the Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced, Championship and Adult teams. Wear only one costume for the whole show. I must have the full name and birthdate- including year- from all who will be on base for this show. Dancers, parents, siblings, everyone, and I have to have this by July 23. Please e-mail me!

August 4, Tuesday – Born To Succeed – Be there by 9:45 AM, show is 10:00-10:45. All classes invited to attend. 8211 Ustick Rd. (corner of Milwaukee and Ustick Rd.)
