More than 300 cloggers gathered on Feb. 12 at Cape Fear Middle School in Rocky Point to pay tribute to their clogging instructor, Jimmy Watson.
Leland resident Jimmy Watson was the owner and director of many clogging studios throughout the East Coast. For more than 20 years, he shared his love of clogging with thousands of dancers.
Along with his wife, Sue, Jimmy Watson began shagging and square dancing, but decided those types of dances didn’t offer enough involvement for children. He began a career in clogging at the age of 40.
