BMC Spring Concert Promises "No Boundaries"
What began as a traditional Appalachian clogging team at Mars Hill College has evolved over the years into a fearless team of dancers who have tackled numerous styles of dance and music on their way to 18 national titles.
At their spring concert, “No Boundaries,” The Bailey Mountain Cloggers will exhibit that fearless resistance to limits that has won them so many successes.
“’No Boundaries’ is about taking risks and about bringing many types of dance and many different people together in order to produce a one of a kind production,” said BMC General Manager Danielle Plimpton. “It is about stepping out of the box and loving dance over all obstacles the world might throw at you.”
According to Plimpton, the concert will incorporate the southern Appalachian tradition of clogging, as well as ballet, tap, hip hop, and ballroom. The final production will be a single show which is about beautiful movement without fear, and without limits.
“No Boundaries,” will take place in Moore Auditorium, April 23 and 24 at 7:00pm, and April 25 at 2:30pm. Tickets are $12 each (ages 6 & under free) and senior and group discounts are available.
Established in 1974, the Bailey Mountain Cloggers have performed throughout the United States and internationally in Canada, Mexico, England, Scotland, Austria, Spain and Ireland.
At last fall’s American Clogging Hall of Fame National Competition in Maggie Valley, NC, the Cloggers won their 17th and 18th national titles. As a result, they currently hold national titles as Overall Traditional Precision Team Champions and Overall Show Team Champions.
