Join the national-champion Bailey Mountain Cloggers for their annual spring concert, March 2 – 4 in Moore Auditorium. The concert will take place at 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and 3 p.m. on Sunday.
Every spring, The Bailey Mountain Cloggers present a huge production celebrating the history of clogging and dance. This year, the theme, “Legends in Music,” was chosen as a way for students to represent artists who have inspired them to dance. Inspiration came from a variety of genres including country, pop, hip-hop, rock, and the blues. Students were required to do extensive research on the artist of their choice in order to understand that artist’s influences, passions, and dedication to the arts. The students will have the opportunity to pay tribute and honor these legends and the contributions that they have made to American culture. The spring production is a fundraiser that will support the team to travel internationally to folk and dance festivals. To date, the team has traveled to 11 different countries where they have had the opportunity to share with and learn from local dancers about their culture and traditional dance. The BMC is committed to paying homage in a respectful manner and only wish to share the artistry learned.
We are proud of the hard work that our students have put into this production. We are working with our Diversity Office to assure that students are properly honoring the immeasurable contributions of all our musical legends. We celebrate our commitment to diversity, recognizing that our success depends on our ongoing willingness to learn and evolve, as we become a premiere liberal arts institution that engage learners into ethical citizens and successful leaders in an ever-changing world.
