Kalei Mariah Bowser was named to the 2014 All-American Clogging Team. The announcements were made at the American Clogging Hall of Fame Championships held in Spartanburg, South Carolina this weekend. An All-American Clogging Team is selected each year through a nominating and selection process in which 24 of our best dancers are chosen. These dancers are showcased at the World Championships each year.
Kalei(L) is pictured below with her dance director (Mamie McAbee-R) from Rhythm and Class Studios in North Augusta. Kalei is a freshman at Anderson University and is a 2014 graduate of Strom Thurmond High School.
The celebration consisted of the All American clogging team performing a Hoedown after they each received special recognition and jackets. The announcement came on Saturday afternoon. The competition concluded on Sunday afternoon.
Clogging was an activity Kalei fell in love with by the age of 5. Rhythm & Class Dance Studio have taught her far more than just the abilities to dance. The experiences shared there have formed bonding friendships that will last and be treasured for a life time. The dance team is much more like a dance family.
