Rise and Shine Cloggers

From Bloomingpedia

Bloomington is home to the award winning Rise and Shine Cloggers. They are a group consisting of 12 girls who provide amusementfor the community. They have performed for the Parks and Recreation Department, The Buskirk-Chumley Theater in downtown Bloomington, and the Bloomington Pops Ochestra. In addition to the local performances they put on, they have also amazed audiences in Las Vegas and at Walt Disney World.

The team practices at the Rise and Shine Studio located in Ellettsville, IN. The studio is owned by the team's directors Jon and Diane Hasler. The studio's website was designed by a former Rise and Shine clogger, Dustin Stephan, who attends Indiana University.

If you are somewhat confused about what clogging actually is, you are not alone. Clogging is known as America's original step dance, or traditional Appalachian flatfoot dance. Clogging is not only known nationally, but internationally.
