Traditional Dance Classes

Flatfooting Class

Lesia Linkous

Flatfooting and clogging are the mainstays of the dance floor at The Friday Night Jamboree. These are traditional Appalachian dance styles handed down through the generations. There is a magic synchrony that happens when the band and the dancers are working together.

We’re delighted to offer dance lessons to get you started with some traditional Appalachian steps. You won’t believe how much fun it is working with our instructor, Lesia Linkous. In a short, intense hour she’ll give you enough knowledge and confidence to get out on the dance floor and get the full experience of the Floyd Country Store Friday Night Jamboree. The lesson runs from 5:00pm to 6:00pm on select Fridays and costs $15 (students $10). Keep your eye on our calendar to see when the next lesson is scheduled.
