90-minute freestyle flatfoot clogging workshop for all levels (for adults/teens/children age 8-and-up)

A 90-minute freestyle flatfoot clogging workshop will be offered with instructor Aubrey Atwater on a Saturday to be determined in January or February, from 1:00-2:30 p.m. This class is designed for all levels including complete beginner adults, teens and children age 8-and-up. Minimum of 8 students needed to hold class; maximum of 18 students. Fee for the 90-minute workshop is $25.00 ($15 for children 8-15). Prepayment necessary! 

Join renowned dancer, Aubrey Atwater, for this exciting and innovative class exploring a traditional form of Appalachian step-dance with fascinating African, Celtic/Anglo, European, and Native American roots. Students will learn the basic flatfoot dance form in this 90-minute class. Be sure to wear smooth, leather-soled shoes (no taps please!) with a good "slide" and supportive clothing for exercise. 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.
