Come try a clogging class! Clogging is "called" much like square dancing is, so you don't have to memorize dance routines. You learn lots of individual steps like the Outhouse, the Turkey, the Cowboy, and the Rocking Chair, and when the music starts, you listen to the caller and voila! Learn a whole new dance in a few short minutes! Line dancing, move over. Clogging is the next level of fun!
Please wear tap shoes, jingle-tap clogging shoes, or smooth-soled shoes that don't grip the floor.
Nancy Kenny has been teaching clogging dance classes every week at the Countryside YMCA since 2013. She earned the rank of nationally Certified Clogging Instructor (CCI) after completing portions of the rigorous national training program in Texas, Georgia, and Tennessee. She also hosted three "Clogging Craziness" workshops here at the Countryside YMCA which attracted cloggers locally as well as from other states. Nancy has a special interest in sharing her love of clog dancing with entire families, since clogging is an activity suitable for every age and every stage in life. Because clogging is 'called' much like square dancing, students learn a wide variety of short, individual steps like the Outhouse, the Rocking Chair, the Turkey, and the Cowboy, and will listen for each step to be called out while the music is playing. Because there is so much variety with dance steps as well as music choices, there is always something brand new to learn in clogging dance class!
