Members sought for 4-H dance club

The Dubois County Country Cloggers is a county performing arts 4-H club for children and adults interested in dancing for exercise, fun and entertainment.

Children in kindergarten through second grade can be a part of the Exploring 4-H Club, which allows younger kids to be involved with 4-H with not as many project requirements. It allows them to explore all of the projects and try 4-H out. The mini 4-H dance club also gets to perform with the older members at all the performances.

Children in grades three through 12 who enroll in the clogging project will attend practices, perform at various activities throughout the year and also complete a project to be judged at the county fair.

Adults who are interested in learning some dance steps generally help out by dancing, setting up the dance floor, helping with the dance line-up at performances and fundraising efforts.

In addition to the fun times members have at practices, the Dubois County Country Cloggers also entertain throughout the year. For years, the cloggers have performed on the main stage at the Jasper Strassenfest and other county festivals. The club performs at many nursing homes for the residents. The highlight for the clogging club is performing on the dance stage at the Indiana State Fair.

The club meets every Tuesday from 6 and 8 p.m. in the Annex building at the Dubois County 4-H Fairgrounds.

For more information about joining the club, contact Eve Drew at 812-631-1603 or stop by the fairgrounds any Tuesday night.
