  This class is for children ages 1 ½ to pre-school. Fun, organized dance and movement without a major commitment to
  a long dance program. Focus of the class is rhythm, movement, and beginning clogging steps. What is clogging? Also
  called “hillbilly tap-dancing,” clogging is an authentic form of American folk dance - no wooden shoes involved! The
  shoe that could be used is much like a tap shoe, but is not required for the class, nor is any specific attire. Listening
  and learning how to be a part of a class are much of the focus, and parents are encouraged to participate.
