    The Peanut City Cloggers Team was  officially formed in January 1983. The team is comprised of youngsters aged 7 through adults and provides family-type entertainment to the community. We also have an adult group who practice  monthly for recreation as well as promoting the art of clogging. The team  performs both precision and traditional clogging. Performance times run from 30-45 minutes, depending on the particular needs of  the client.
    The team has attended workshops in Hampton, Franklin and Chesapeake, Va. and has also traveled to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, Ripley, W. Va., Harris, Maine  and the capital of clogging, Maggie Valley,  N.C.
    The team regularly competes in clogging competitions including the "America's  Clogging Hall of Fame" national competition  each October. They have won numerous  awards in both traditional and precision clogging. The team also has the distinction of having two cloggers named to the 1995 and 1996 All American Clogging Teams.
    In addition to performing at private functions and private parties, the team has performed at such events as the Annual Crab Carnival in West Point, Va., the Oyster Bowl Parade, Oceanview Festival and the Town Point Bluegrass Clogging Classic in Norfolk, Va., The Muscular  Dystrophy Telethon and Princess Anne Folk  Art Festival in Virginia Beach, Hampton Bay Days in Hampton, Va., The Pork, Pine and Peanut Festival in Surry, Va.. The  Watermelon and Swamp Festivals in N.C.,  and at Suffolks Balloon and Peanut Festivals.
    Old fashion barn dances, sponsored by the Peanut City Cloggers and the Suffolk Department of Parks and Recreation are also a part of the regularly scheduled entertainment provided by the team. Barn dances are held 2-3 times a year, providing family-type entertainment, hot/cold buffet, and generally featuring a championship clogger as caller. These barn dances are open to the public and usually draw a crowd of 200-300 community participants, including as many as 4-5 area clogging teams.
