    Please bring clogging shoes. Tap shoes are OK but not great. Teacher has some clogging shoes people can borrow, but not many and only for during class time, mostly smaller sizes.

     

    Clogging has been long been called "The Melting Pot of Dance" as it's a uniquely American dance. Starting in the Appalachian Mountains in pioneer days, Irish immigrants blended their footwork with African steps and Native American dance to make a fresh blend that has roots all over the world.

     

    A note from the teacher about shoes:

    Shoes like Steven's Stompers brand can be ordered online, but you can also get decent clogging oxfords much cheaper on Amazon. The taps are sold separately and need to be installed. Order Buck Taps, the nail-on kind, NOT the glue-on ones! If you can't figure out how to install the taps on your shoes, don't freak out! Any cobbler can do it. Or ask me for help. (You could even order pre-owned shoes from ebay with the taps already on and save yourself the bother!) They may also still carry them at the dance store in the Powerhouse Mall or at the Country Cobbler in West Lebanon.

     

    I've been clogging for over 25 years, teaching for around 15 years, and it hasn't gotten any less fun since the day I started! I just finished up a block of classes with the Tunbridge school kids and they're hooked too!
