Come learn fundamental clogging steps and combine them into various routines. Clogging is a high energy form of dance, similar to tap. No previous dance experience is needed in this class.
There are many benefits to clogging, the first being that it’s so fun! You will get the benefits of improved flexibility, coordination, endurance, strength, and building self confidence. It has been proven to lower blood pressure, increase lung capacity, and help with weight loss (burns up to 400 calories per hour!). Clogging is one of the best ways to relieve stress and stay in shape while having a great time.
Clogging is an American traditional dance. Sometimes called flatfooting, buckdancing or jigging, it’s a style of rhythmic improvisation that developed alongside old time music as European and African American musical traditions met and influenced each other in the southern United States.
This class time is specifically for adults only, aged 18 or older. Clogs with buck taps are preferred. Clog retailer is available online for ordering.
You can pre-register ahead of time, or walk into class.
