Mountain Heritage is the premier clogging group of the Shenandoah Valley. Ginny Guertler, the co-founder of the Bull Run Cloggers, originally started the group over 20 years go, and the Mountain Heritage Cloggers have been wowing audiences ever since. Since 2001, Mountain Heritage has been under the direction of Lisa Johnson.
MHC has performed at many different venues such as Opryland, Dollywood, Virginia and West Virginia State Fairs, the Washington D.C. post office, Richmond Science Museum, Richmond Children's Museum, Maryland State Fair, Waynesboro Extravaganza, Sweet Dreams Celebration, Happy Birthday USA, Highland County Maple Festival, Oak Lawn Bluegrass Festival, Stoney Creek Bluegrass Festival
Waynesboro First Night, and local picnics, nursing homes, and other community events.
Mountain Heritage is a family oriented group that focuses on working together as a team and not focusing on just one individual. They promote individual greatness, but strive to make sure that all participants realize each team member is important both as individuals and as a part of the team.
MHC practices every Tuesday at the Crimora Community Center in Crimora, Virginia. They hold beginner classes two times a year, and are always accepting new dancers. The group consists of six different levels that will accommodate any dancer’s ability or need starting with a pee-wee class for dancers five
and under, beginner classes for children and adults, intermediate classes for performing children and adults, intermediate recreation.
We also offer Competitive Clogging Team Placement with our sister clogging group Rhythmic Alliance. Auditions are held every year in November. For more information, check out Rhythmic Alliance's Website at www.rhythmicalliance.com or contact Lisa Johnson
