Beginner Flatfooting


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. There are solo & "team" clogging styles, and this class will explore both, with a possible/optional performance in January.

Footwear should be either low-heeled tap shoes or leather-soled shoes. (The point is to make rhythms with your feet, so anything that helps you hear yourself and doesn't stick to the floor will work fine).
