Last year, we performed at 20 different events, such as: Ohio State Fair, Bob Evans Farm Festival, Millersport Corn Festival, many local fish frys, and much more. We clog to a variety of music, pop, country, bluegrass, traditional, show soundtracks, and hip-hop, etc. Any thing that has a beat, and interests the dancers, and of course the audience.
