Campbell School Dance Teams Are Yearly Performers at Bear

Two Performances: 11:00am and 02:00pm

At Bear on the Square Festivals during recent years, another dimension of excitement has been added to Dahlonega's Historic Public Square with appearances by dance teams from the John C. Campbell Folk School. Providing dance exhibitions on Saturdays of the festival have been 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. Dance teams performing at the 21st annual festival will be the Brasstown Morris Dancers and Band and the Kudzu Kickers clogging team from Murphy, N.C., who will present a mixed set of traditional English Morris Dancing and Appalachian Clogging.
