CLOGGING WORKSHOP

Updated 8/12/18

There are currently no clogging classes planned for Fall-Winter 2018. However, please email russell@riverfolk.org if you are interested in future classes!

2-Hour Workshop for all levels on Saturday, June 2, 1:00 to 3:00 PM
(for adults/teens/children age 8-and-up)

A two-hour clogging workshop for all levels will be offered with instructor Aubrey Atwater on Saturday, June 2, from 1:00-3:00 P.M. This class is designed for all levels including complete beginner adults, teens and children age 8-and-up. Minimum of 5 students needed to hold class; maximum of 18 students. Fee for the two-hour workshop is $25.00 ($15 for children 8-15). Because this is a two-hour workshop, some time will be spent watching a few short videos and exploring the cultural roots of clogging. Prepayment necessary! 

Clogging, also known as flatfooting and jigdancing, is American step dance which developed, historically, after Irish step dance and before Tap, with Irish, English, European, African, and Native American roots. With percussive tapping of the feet, clogging is traditionally danced to old-time fiddle tunes. Aubrey will supply the music with her own banjo playing, teaching steps she has learned from cloggers all over the United States and in particular, Kentucky, Arkansas, and North Carolina. Please wear smooth, leather-soled shoes and comfortable, loose clothing (no taps please!)
