In Beginner Clogging, we teach the 8 fundamental clogging steps from which all the other steps are formed. By the end of class, students will have learned at least 1-2 routines performed by the club. There is no homework, though we encourage you to practice outside of class.
In Intermediate clogging, we will learn more challenging clogging steps as well as improve speed and precision. Students will learn 3-4 dances and build their clogging step “vocabulary.” Prerequisite: This class assumes the dancer already knows the fundamentals of clogging. There is no homework, though we encourage you to practice outside of class.
For both classes:
- Wear loose fitting, comfortable clothing in which you can move easily and bring a water bottle.
- Wear flat-soled, tennis shoes or sneakers. It is very important that the shoe be able to slide. Tennis shoes with a thick tread pattern will make learning more difficult. Zumba shoes, ballroom dance shoes or any shoe with a smooth-sole works well. Dance socks fitted over sneakers also work well.
- Students do NOT need clogging shoes for Beginner Clogging. In Intermediate Clogging, dancers are encouraged to wear clogging shoes. NOTE: The Front Porch does not allow clogging shoes on their floor.
- Children under 12 years old must be accompanied by an adult taking the class.
