at the Texas Folklife Festival
The Fire on the Mountain
Cloggers have performed throughout Texas, the neighboring states, in Mexico,
South America and Europe for over twenty years.
However, our most favorite event is the famous gathering in San Antonio known as the Texas Folklife Festival.
The Grand Opening Ceremony
takes place at the flagpole area of the Institute of Texan Cultures. The numerous
flags towering high above
the crowd, including Spain, France, Mexico, Republic of Texas,
Confederacy, and the United States, represent the many flags which have flown over our
great land of Texas. Because the Fire on the Mountain Cloggers have performed at the
Texas Folklife Festival since 1982, we are well known
to those who attend annually. It is not
unusual to have festival attendees ask if certain dancers will be performing or
to have individuals comment on past performances at festivals gone by.
is the key at the Texas Folklife Festival and we
strive to present a different show during each performance at the event. Fire on the Mountain Cloggers, a traditional
Appalachian style clogging team, promotes bluegrass music and original dance
choreography. The spectators are always supportive and seem to
approve of our musical selections and dance steps as they applaud resoundingly.
