TLC KICKS IT UP WITH NEW SPECIAL DOWN SOUTH DANCE
Premiering September 26th, DOWN SOUTH DANCE explores the intensely completive world of clogging
The sport of clogging might not have the national profile of other dance styles, but its competitive spirit and furious pace is demanding more and more attention. Clogging is a high-octane version of tap-dance and its competitors are fierce with rivalries that can turn into multigenerational blood feuds. DOWN SOUTH DANCE, premiering September 26th at 11pm on TLC, follows two teams of teen cloggers as they compete in the R2K Clogging Invitational.
The rivalry between teams Sapphire (Gaffney, SC) and Synergy (Cumming, GA) is anything but friendly. Coaches Chip Harrison and Sarah Darby agree on only one thing: no amount oftraining is too intense if it means winning. The special follows the week leading into the competition, and when Chip attempts to poach dancers from Sarah’s studio, the drama escalates – drawing the mothers of the teen dancers into the crossfire. The coaches demand perfection from their dancers while also throwing everything they have into their training, because in the end, there can only be one winner.
DOWN SOUTH DANCE is produced by FremantleMedia North America. Executive producers are Kevin Williams, Larry Barron, Oliver Bogner and Jonathan Bogner.
