CLOGGING – Instructor: Tracy Walters

What is clogging?

This is a type of dance that is similar to tap dancing but it has its own unique style. It incorporates line dancing, Irish dancing and more and its own unique steps as it is influenced by different types of dance. Our class therefore incorporates a variety of music – country, blue grass, rock and roll, dance and Irish.

 

EQUIPMENT

  • bottled water,
  • shoes with a slipper/leathery type sole (no rubber bottom shoes) as these are easier to dance with. You do not need to buy shoes until you are sure you are going to enjoy and continue with the class.

Clogging – Beginner (Fitness Level 3)

 

We start off learning a couple of basic steps, practicing these steps as we work our way to learn the steps for an entire dance. Normally, the group will have the first basic steps learned and ready to do an entire dance after the first class! We spend the rest of the 6 weeks learning more steps and dances as we progress as a group through the various steps. Don’t worry about falling behind, we don’t move forward into new steps until we all as a group have the steps nailed down. Looking for a new low-medium impact program for the body and mind? Give clogging a try!

 

No experience necessary.

Please note: Clogging is a progressive class. If you are starting at the beginner class, it will take approximately 1 year or 3 beginner clogging sessions before you will move into the Intermediate classes.
