Clogging

Clogging –Focusing on coordination and rhythm, students will learn a variety of clogging techniques.  Clogging students who enroll in the Recreational Dance Session will learn a routine to be performed at the Annual One Step Above Dance Recital.

Clogging is a type of folk dance with roots in traditional European dancing, early African-American dance, and traditional Cherokee dance in which the dancer's footwear is used musically by striking the heel, the toe, or both in unison against a floor or each other to create audible percussive rhythms. The dance has fused with similar dances such as the Peruvian dance "zapateo" (which may in itself be a derivate of very early European clog dances), this resulted in the birth of newer street dances, such as tap, locking, jump, stomping and the Nordic track dance. The use of clogs is rarer in the more modern dances since clog shoes seem no longer to be a fashion in urban society (of which most dances are now evolving from). Clogging in its main form is often considered the first dance to be classed as a street dance, this is since it evolved in urban environments during the industrial revolution due to urbanisation.

Please review the schedule for the days, time slots and age groups that clogging is available for.
