What is Clogging?
Well if you started dusting off the clogs sitting on the back shelf in your garage, you can return them. Clogging is a misnomer as it is not performed in clogs. Don’t think that means it isn’t going to be a whole lot of fun!
Clogging or Appalachian Mountain Folk Dance is an American folk dance performed to a wide range of music. Initially music is fairly slow, but as the dancer’s progress it can become quite fast.
Can never remember dance moves? Or don’t have a dance partner? Well never fear... Clogging is ‘cued’ similar to square dancing or aerobics and you don’t need a partner, just comfortable clothes and a pair of enclosed shoes (no runners). As you improve, 'buck taps' are attached to your shoes.
So if you are ready to find a new and exciting world of fun, fitness and friends head down to the Russell Square Hall on Friday mornings. The Dixie Doozle Cloggers have been dancing in Ballarat since 1999 with the instructor, Val, holding a Gold Level Instructors Accreditation from the Australian Clogging Association Inc.

So what are you waiting for... it’s great exercise for the body and brain.
