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.
2016 NCCA Convention:
Summer Splash to be held in June!
Due to the availability of the DoubleTree Hotel
facilities, the convention will be June 3-5, 2016 in
Modesto. That will be the perfect time to get your
summer fun started. Sarah Dwight-Gilroy and Heather
Smith are heading up the committees and we're expecting
a fun weekend as always. The flier is available here.

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
