Learn Appalachian Clogging
Clogging is a percussive dance that evolved in the Appalachian Mountains. Often called the country cousin to tap dancing, clogging is a fusion of step dancing from the British Isles with African rhythms and movement. Combined with driving old-time fiddle tunes, this energetic, rhythmically exciting, and visuality stimulating dance is a joyful experience for both participants and observers.
Beginning Clogging starts from scratch. It covers the basic rhythms and movements of the dance and progresses to include simple freestyle variations.
Intermediate Clogging picks up where Beginning Clogging leaves off. The basic movements are combined and expanded to include more subtle rhythmic and visual variations.
Students will be clogging to live and recorded music on a wooden floor. Light layered clothing and street shoes with leather or other hard soles are all that will be needed. Sneakers and sandals don't work very well. Metal taps are not permitted or desired.
