About the Workshop

Clogging & Flatfooting Level II – Support the Tune will be a deep dive into Appalachian percussive dance forms such as flatfooting, clogging and buck dance. We will focus on musicality, syncopation, and improvisation explore what it means to dance the tune, and dig into how to support a singer using footwork akin to a drum set. It is my hope that everyone will walk away with new tools and footwork vocabulary to use on the dance floor. This class will be accommodating for all levels, come as you are. Leather bottom shoes suggested.
