The Quad City Cloggers are starting new beginner lessons on Wednesday, May 20th at 6pm. Classes meet at the Square and Round Hall, 323-1/2 - 17th Street in Bettendorf and will continue through the Summer. No partners are needed and taps are not required to start: smooth soled shoes that slide on wood are recommended. First lesson is free, then $4 per class for adult beginners.

History:

The Quad City Cloggers is a club which has been active in the Quad Cities for over 25 years.  Our goal is to promote, practice, perform and teach traditional-style clogging.  We are members of the Quad Cities Square and Round Federation, and we meet weekly throughout the year.

Clogging is the style of percussive dance (tap) that came out of the Appalachian Mountains from Irish, English and Scottish settlers; sometimes referred to as "American Step Dancing."  There are many forms of clogging, such as flatfoot and buck.  The Quad City Cloggers teach a traditional style.  The focus of clogging is on the footwork with little arm choreography.

Clogging is good exercise and lots of fun for all ages.  Come for the exercise and join us as we have fun and perform at the Senior Olympics, Bix Family Fest, Arrowhead Ranch Auction, Pioneer Village, Festival of Trees and at local nursing homes.

Whether you are interested in learning to clog for just the fun, just for exercise or to perform with a group, all are welcome.

Please contact Mary Ann Robinson, Instructor, at 563-289-5742 or Teresa Young, youth instructor, at 563-323-7412.
