Winners of The Carolina Opry’s online clogging “Challenge” have been selected and will dance live onstage this Saturday night, September 21, in The Carolina Opry show alongside America’s Got Talent finalists All That.
In May, the renowned clogging group launched a multi-phase online dance lesson series with an opportunity for submission entry. Hundreds of dancers submitted their performances of the original choreographed routine and 10 winners were chosen to perform the number live on stage with the group.
The entertainment world is tough to break into, which is why All That created this opportunity. All That posted four different video segments to their Facebook page and YouTube channel for entrants to practice and potentially perform alongside them on stage. After all entries were submitted, All That and Calvin Gilmore, founder of The Carolina Opry, chose the top ten entries together. “All That are a dance phenomenon. They have created a great opportunity for some new young dancers to get some real experience and add substantively to their resumes. We’ll all be watching and wishing them well as they debut this weekend!”
