Dance. Rhythm. Friendship. Fun.
Tucked in the Great Smoky Mountains of North Carolina, this is one of the traditional places cloggers have gathered over the years to enjoy camaraderie and dancing. You'll dance on an old-timey wooden floor where such steps as the Rocking Chair were created. A good portion of the team is planning to go once again this year, and we've pre-booked three of the nicest cabins there.
Cabins are available for rent (a cheap stay...about $120 per person for the entire weekend) with kitchens. A hotel also is on the premises if you want to stay with fewer folks. You can see all the instructors and download a registration flier at http://fontanaworkshop.com.
It's a gorgeous location. I've been there several times and enjoyed every trip. You won't find another place to attend a clogging workshop like this. Yellow Rose has been the last two years and we're always ready to go back.
We'll leave on the Wednesday or Thursday before the workshop and make it a long weekend. We'll settle the team planning later this summer and gauge who wants to stay together in cabins and who might want to be the drivers as we'll caravan down. The cabins all have full kitchens and look great. Six to eight folks can stay per cabin.
We've only reserved one cabin, so if you're planning to go, put down your nonrefundable deposit ($40) by June 1. If we have more than six people going and need another cabin, we'll seek out another one.
If you only choose one workshop to go to each year, this one should be it! $30 workshop registration before Sept. 1; $35 after and at the door. No refunds after Sept. 1.
