Taught by Evie Ladin with music by Suzy’s Floozies (Suzy Thompson on fiddle, Maxine Gerber on banjo and Kate Brislin on guitar).
Southern Appalachian Flatfoot Clogging is a step dance style developed in the mountains in the Southeastern United States. A unique mixture of English, Irish African and Native American percussive dance, Flatfoot Clogging is practiced individually and on teams wherever Old-Time or Bluegrass music is heard.
This 45 minute video is designed to make you feel as if you are actually in Evie’s clogging class, with fine Old-Time stringband music, and the energy of a room full of dancers. Evie introduces a variety of basic steps, building sequentially so you continue to add to your repertoire while reviewing at the same time. You will also learn some strategies for freestyling – helping you combine your favorite steps. Evie’s fluid technique will get you dancing and keep you dancing.
Clogger Evie Ladin set the house afire.
Dynamic freestyle dancing…Her presentation is enthusiastic and well-organized.
