What is clogging? Clogging, known as the “melting pot of dances,” began during the 1700’s in the Appalachian mountains of the eastern United States. Scottish, Irish, English, and Dutch-German settlers found common ground through dance. Over time, their styles wove together and clogging was born. As clogging spread throughout the United States, other influences, such as Native American and African, found their way into this new dance form. (http://www.danceadvantage.net/clogging/)
Clogging is a percussive type of dance. We dance to any music with a good beat – think of line dancing with tap shoes and that’s clogging! No partners are required, but friends make it fun! If you can walk and count to five, you can clog!
Class meets Thursdays, from 7:15-8:15pm, starting 1/19-3/9 for 8 Classes. Class is held at the Clovis North HS Dance Studio, taught by Barry Welch, who has been clogging since 1983!
