Learn to clog
If you love moving with the music then try this lively percussive style of step dancing, known as clogging. Instructors from The Eclectic Cloggers dance group will introduce you to the fun of traditional Appalachian clog dancing.
Are you an experienced clogger? We are always interested in meeting fellow cloggers with steps to share. Please email us to let us know of your interest. We would love to hear from you!
Mini Classes to start the new year!
The Eclectic Cloggers are offering a series of two mini classes on Tuesday evenings in January of 2018! We've never offered these classes before and are excited to share new rhythms with you.
Hamboning for Novices
This is a family friendly class to learn hand patterns so you can be a rhythm section with your favorite music. We'll teach at a slower pace and have you hamboning along to Old Time tunes in no time. Your only prerequisite is the ability to clap in time to music. You will be seated and "dancing" with your hands for the entire class. Children under 12 can attend for free with a paying adult. Classes run for 4 Tuesdays in January starting on January 2nd. This half hour class runs from 7 to 7:30 pm. This series of classes costs $35.
Flatfooting for Beginners
Flatfooting is a style of clogging that gives some interesting rhythmic options. To avoid shin splints and fatigue to awakening muscles we are keeping this class length at 30 minutes. Through the week you can do some repetition on your own and strengthen your dancing legs. There is no prerequisite other than an ability to walk in time to music. Some background in percussive dance is certainly helpful. Classes run for 4 Tuesdays in January starting January 2nd. This half hour class runs from 7:30 to 8 pm. This series of classes cost $35.
If you would like to take both Hamboning and Flatfooting from 7 to 8 pm, the combined tuition for both mini classes is $50. These classes will be held in the Phinney neighborhood in Seattle. Please email us for more information and to register for these classes.
