Appalachian Clogging and Flatfooting w/ Nic Gareiss

Sun Mar 26

Flat-footing and clogging are solo freestyle forms of American dance originating in the Appalachian mountains with connections to Western European, Native American and West African dance. Using the toes, heels and ball of the foot to strike and slide across the floor, flat-footing is a percussive dance style that articulates the rhythms of mountain fiddle and banjo music. Wear comfortable leather-soled shoes for this class.

Dance the Tune w/ Nic Gareiss

Sun Mar 26

Utilizing improvisation, organic movement, and drawing from a myriad of percussive dance styles including Irish step dance, Appalachian flat-footing, and Quebecois gigue, this class explores the sheer musical potential of your feet. Using imitation, idiomatic ornaments as well as alternate shoe-sounds and textures, we will learn to construct lines of rhythm imitating melody as well as create rhythmic counterpoint by setting up shoe-grooves employing contemporary musical sensibility.
