Happy Feet Cloggers

Community Association

American Clogging is a form of dance that originated in the Appalachian Mountains. It is a vigorous, energetic, and up-beat style of dance that is influenced by English, Irish, German, French, African, and even American Indian dance. Clogging is great fun, great exercise, and a challenging mental activity as well.

The Happy Feet Cloggers have been a Special Interest Group (SIG) of the Dance/Drill Club since January 2004. Membership varies around 50 participants.

The Cloggers hold weekly classes and practice sessions. Classes meet each Friday in the Atrium of the Activity Center from 9:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. Our instructor is Terrie Gatton from Kempner, Texas. Clogging tuition is $50 per quarter (13 weeks), and is in addition to the cost of purchasing dance shoes, taps, etc.

Beginning Clogging classes are held yearly, starting in March. The first two sessions of each Beginner class are free to enable you to decide whether Clogging is for you.

The next Beginners class are held in the Atrium which is located in the Activity Center. The Beginner session starts at 9:15 a.m.  Please keep checking this site for the exact start date.

The Happy Feet Cloggers are an active performance group, and have performed for various Sun City club functions, events and neighborhood socials; for nursing homes and church groups; and have performed in the annual Sun City Follies and the Georgetown Market Days.  Performing is always optional.

The Happy Feet Cloggers won 2nd Place in the Sun City's Got Talent Show, held on August 13, 2016.  The Cloggers also won 1st Place in this same talent show, held in August 2015.

Visitors to our Friday classes are welcome. There are no prerequisites to join. Come find out if this is your kind of fun! For more information contact Suzanne Alford at 512-688-1147 or salford1@mac.com.

What Is Clogging?

Clogging is a PERCUSSIVE DANCE FORM -- so yes, it is similar to tap, Irish and Canadian step dance. But clogging is more than that.
