The Stevens County Stompers, under the direction of Melissa Johnson, recently attended a regional clogging competition in Scottsdale, Arizona. The Stompers’ own Hannah Johnson, a two-time National clogging champion, competed in the MASTERS division and placed seond overall in traditional, and third (out of 7) in her age division in Contemporary. Marilyn Hawkins, 13-years-old at her first clogging competition, competed in the BEGINNER division placing second overall in Acappella and third overall in Contemporary. Marilyn also medaled in both categories in her age division.
Kathy Olsen, one of our adult cloggers, competed in the AMATEUR division and did very well, placing second overall in Acappella and also medaling in her age division. Also medaling in Solos – Lori Londagin in Acappella and Donna Jo Smith in Contemporary.
In addition to the solo events, the Stompers brought two team dances which both earned trophies and really got the audience on their feet.
In September we will be starting new classes in Chewelah and Colville. If interested, please call Melissa Johnson at 509-675-1786.
