Clogging is an expressive style of American folk dance. In this type of dance, double tapped shoes are worn, and the dancers produce audible rhythms by striking the heel or toe against the floor. Clogging primarily developed from Irish step dancing. There were also English, Scottish, German, Cherokee, African, and Appalachian influences. The Marquette Cloggers have been clogging since the early 90s. With many different instructors over the years. Casie Nelson has been teaching clogging at the Marquette Fine Arts Center Dance Studio since 2007. There are classes for all ages. Class Sessions start in August and January each year. The studio also offers other classes, such as ballet, tap, jazz and yoga. Check them out on the Marquette Fine Arts Center Facebook Page.
