Hello Directors, Dancers, Parents, and Supporters of CCA!!
We are very excited to announce our new theme for the 2013 season and 2014 Showdown of Champions!! The Clogging Champions of America “RACE FOR THE CUP”, will be our ongoing theme for the year and we need your help to make it great!
It is not just about the end goal, but it is truly How You Run the Race That Counts!
What is the “Race for the Cup”?
As the 15th season of the Clogging Champions of America is upon us, we want to honor those that make this organization great…our amazing dancers, directors, and their teams! As an organization, Clogging Champions of America understands that you have put your heart and “sole” into making this sport of clogging the most amazing sport in the nation. Our dancers and directors run this race from year to year, not only for the possibility of becoming the CCA National Champions, but to be a part of an organization and sport that means much more than trophies or titles. Only a handful of teams walk away with titles each year, but it is evident that it is not just about this end goal for our teams. It is also about how you run this race and what is being instilled in these dancers and their lives. Clogging Champions of America wants to honor our teams and place well deserved emphasis on our dancers throughout the season and at the 2014 CCA Showdown of Champions.
How will we honor our teams and dancers?
Every year, CCA is honored to hear stories of directors, dancers and their families who utilize clogging to make a difference in the lives of others. Whether it is making a difference for individual dancers, your community, or your friends, the difference that you do make is huge. We want to share your stories and inspire others to do the same!
- CCA will be posting news stories and updates about our dancers and teams all throughout the year on Facebook and at www.ccaclog.com
- CCA will also be sending out a monthly newsletter highlighting stories and examples of a great clogging race.
We Need your Help!
We want to hear about great things that are accomplished through clogging and your teams. It doesn’t matter how big or small. Your group may be utilizing performances to raise funds for special needs, or you may have a dancer that was comfortable performing in front of a large crowd for the first time. We want to know, so that we can share these stories. It is not just the title holders that deserve bragging rights!
