Instructor
Peggy Leiby with dancers from FiddleKicks - we aim to separate into 2 experience levels when possible

Learn Appalachian clogging, percussive dancing to the driving rhythms of old time music. This country cousin to tap is a great way to have fun while exercising! It’s a uniquely American dance which has Celtic, African and Cherokee roots that go way back in Southern Appalachia.Suitable for teens & adults.

Footwear: Hard soled shoes that slide or low-heeled tap shoes are recommended. (a brand we like)

Videos to check out to see & learn more about clogging

An excellent documentary from the Green Grass Cloggers

A routine we like to include in classes. It's a great way to warm-up!

Registration

Pre-registration (below) not required, but it'd be helpful to please let Peggy know you plan to attend: email or 215.643.4397

*********************************

Three good reasons to clog...

You become the rhythm section on the dance floor, you can't help but smile while dancing, and it’s great exercise.
