CLOG AMERICA, known as “America’s Folk Ambassadors”, will celebrate 25 years of representing the United States in over 70 major festivals and events throughout Eastern and Western Europe, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Korea, China and the USA. The ensemble has appeared on national television in Germany, the Czech Republic, France, the Netherlands, Brazil, Macedonia, Hungary, Turkey and the USA.CLOG AMERICA is comprised of award-winning dancers and musicians from throughout the Intermountain West who share their fast-paced, high energy show of American Heritage through music and dance with audiences around the world.
In July 2016, CLOG AMERICA will represent the USA in Festival International de Folklore 'Cultures et Traditions du Monde' de Romans located in Romans-sur-Isere, France. The group will bring smiles to the faces of children in the home for disabled children, “Adapei de la Drome” through music, interactive dances and gifts from home.
CLOG AMERICA will then travel to the XXVII Festival Delle Tre Torri ‘INCONTRI CON IL FOLKLORE INTERNAZIONALE” of Castelforte, Italy and the XXII RASSEGNA DI ARTE E MUSICA POPOLARE NEL LAZIO of Minturno, Italy. It was in 1993 when CLOG AMERICA first appeared in this region of Italy. At that time Journalist Luigi Capunao wrote, “This year the emotions were aroused by the Americans... The group CLOG AMERICA evoked particular sensations with their exciting dances and the rhythm of their special clogging taps. This group brings to mind the fascinating dances of the American Musical Theater.”
