SIX MILE — A local clogging team is hoping to show off its talents nationwide.

The team included nine members of the studio’s Footloose team.

HotFoot Studios owner Sharon Finley said Footloose, the studio’s senior team, took part in auditions for “America’s Got Talent” in Charlotte, N.C., on Dec. 15.

“We participated first in Pickens County’s Got Talent,” Finley said.

Pickens County’s Got Talent  was held as part of the county’s “Blue Ribbon Birthday Bash” sesquicentennial celebration Oct. 6 in Easley.

“We competed in Pickens County’s Got Talent,” Finley said. “We won.”

Because of its success, the team was invited to audition for the 14th season of the popular television show, expected to begin later this year on NBC.

“We got what’s called a front of the line pass,” Finley said. “It was really fun and a great opportunity for us.”

A hostess met the team and guided them around the proceedings, she said.

“We learned a lot about behind the scenes of ‘America’s Got Talent,’” Finley said. “We even performed for the entertainers there. We were made to feel really special. It was a great day for us. We had a great time.”

The team will learn sometime between now and March 1 if they’ll be going
