From Signal Mountain, Tennessee, Bonnie Jean Thomas has appeared as a leader and performer of Appalachian clog, big circle, and American square dance.
Bonnie, husband Tommmy, and children Chip and Sally are devoted to the enjoyment of authentic materials for enriching experience in folklore and dance.
Through her artistry, B.J. has a host of appreciative friends from the many camps and workshops where she has both instructed and entertained.
Tommy's and B.J.'s specialty is taking groups, large and small, with or without previous dancing experience, and keeping them entertained for an entire evening.
Tommy is credited with the original dance "Teton Mountain Stomp" as a mixer.
Tommy and B.J. run the Hidden Hollow Resort in Chickamauga, Georgia, which they bought over 30 years ago. They raised their four children, Bonny Bell, Sally, Tommy, and Chip nearby on Signal Mountain.
Dances B.J. and Tommy have taught include Appalachian Clog, Big Circle Dance, Boogie Fever Mixer, Circassian Circle, Garden Song, and Squares.
