John C. Campbell Traditional Folk Dancers

Saturday, April 22, 2017 - 2:00pm
At the Dahlonega Welcome Center

The Campbell teams will perform traditional dance beginning at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Saturday only at the Visitors Center Plaza. When you hear the music strike up, head over to watch some exhilarating dancing. 

Bringing an added dimension of excitement to Dahlonega's Historic Square when they perform are dance teams from our Bear on the Square Festival Sponsor, the John C. Campbell Folk School.

Campbell Dance Team performances feature colorfully-costumed mock sword fighters, exciting sword dancers, graceful and elegant garland dancers, traditional Appalachian-styled cloggers, and even cloggers performing even older dances from the British Isles. Scheduled to perform this year at Bear are Brasstown Morris Dancers, and Kudzu Kickers from Murphy, NC.
