Intro to Clogging


INSTRUCTOR: Andy Howard (bio)

NOTE: This class is suspended for this term. Come back next term and register!

You don’t need taps to learn how to clog–just a spot to dance and shoes that won’t scuff your floor. (Piece of plywood or a dance board optional). American (Appalachian) Clogging has evolved from a style of square dance to a broader form that includes line dancing (without partners) and using clogging steps that have names and are largely shared throughout the clogging community throughout the United States and beyond. You will learn basic clogging steps and we will string the steps together to learn choreography that can be done with music. Clogging is a great way to exercise, improve your daily step count, and even work on your rhythm and music listening skills.

This class is an in-person class with computer capabilities for anyone wishing to take the class remotely (a live class also streamed through Zoom or other platform of instructor’s choosing). The instructor will send you information on how to access the class online.
