Clogging, Instructor Sharon Heppes
Clogging is a fun form of aerobic exercise, with many health benefits; including improved coordination and flexibility, lower blood pressure and stress relief, increased endurance, strength and lung capacity, and weight loss. Clogging is a percussive dance that keeps time with the downbeat of the music, whereas most other forms of dance keep time with the upbeat. Clogging often imitates the rhythm of the music, although it more often accents and complements the rhythms. Wear comfortable clothes and comfortable shoes with flexible soles -- athletic shoes are acceptable, leather sole shoes are recommended, tap shoes are optional.
