NCCA CONVENTION

NCCA hosts a three-day convention each spring, held somewhere in Northern California. This is the biggest event of the year and is a chance for all cloggers to learn some new dances, experience the best teachers in the area and often a special guest instructor, obtain clogging supplies, watch some great performances, and just see old and new clogging friends. NCCA has been holding these conventions every year since 1984.

You can register online by using PayPal and the form on this page. Save yourself a stamp!

NCCA’s 31st Convention
Dancers had a fun time at NCCA's 31st annual convention on April 25-27, 2014 in Modesto. Thanks to chairmen Kellee and Richard and their crew for putting on a fantastic weekend. This year's convention was a bit different in that there were a TON of oldies but goodies taught, many done in a rapid fire style to fit several dances into one hour. Believe it or not, there were a total of 53 dances taught from Friday night through Sunday morning! Check out the photos here.

The 2013 NCCA Convention was our 30th Anniversary Party!
30 years of clogging conventions in Northern California -- WOW! We had quite a party to celebrate, thanks to chairmen Richard Willyard and Kellee Ramirez. Several teachers were honored with service milestones, most notably the three instructors who have taught at all 30 conventions: Lois Elling, Janice Hanzel, and Michelle John-Smith.
