Jill grew up in East Tennessee and after years of jazz, modern, and square dancing experience, she learned clogging from the Hatfield Sisters who frequently performed on the TV show Hee Haw. She joined Apple Chill in 1996 and has performed with the cloggers at international dance festivals in Switzerland, Belgium, Mexico, and Folkmoot. She often takes various clogging classes to satisfy her broad interest in learning more modern style clogging routines to music from Janet Jackson to the oldies. You might catch her on other dance floors swing dancing or at an occasional contra dance.
