A new television “documentary” airing on TLC next week aims to expose the seedy underworld of competitive clogging in South Carolina.  And yes … this actually has the potential to be far worse for the Palmetto State than that trailer park reality TV show they’re currently filming in Myrtle Beach, S.C.

The one hour special – entitled “Down South Dance” – will focus on the exploits of Team Sapphire, a group of cloggers from the Gaffney, S.C.-based Southern Dance Academy.

According to previews the show focuses on Chip and Misty Harrison, who run the Southern Dance Academy.

“In Gaffney there are three choices of things to do: Go bowling. Get pregnant. Clog,” Chip says in one of the previews.

Take a look …

According to The Spartanburg Herald-Journal, community leaders are already up in arms over the “negative publicity” associated with the show.

“The manner in which TLC is portraying Cherokee County is very unfortunate and not accurate,” Cherokee County Chamber of Commerce director Kayla Robbs told the paper.

Is this lady for real?  Cherokee County’s claim to fame is a giant ass peach, people.  Now people know the region is home to clogging, bowling … and unprotected sex!  Seriously … Cherokee County never had it this good.

Anyway the program will air on Wednesday September 26 – and is likely to see huge ratings given that it’s following the season finale of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” a wildly popular show about a family of obese South Georgia rednecks.
