Q: Do you know about clogging groups in my area?
A: I'm sorry I do not. Unless you
are from North Carolina, and even then, chances are pretty slim... Please
however, feel free to ask questions of everyone who signs my guest book.
I encourage everyone to read over the last few entries and answer any questions
you can! Yellow and White Pages can offer some help, too. Call
around. Even if the instructors don't offer clogging lessons, they
might know someone who does.
Q: Where can I buy...?
videos or books
http://www.clog.com Sells shoes and tee-shirts
http://www.dancecenter.com/ Sells crinolines (petticoats) and western wear
http://www.amazon.com Lists several books including:
Appalachian Clogging and Flatfooting Steps
Clogging and the Southern Appalachian Square Dance by Frank Bonner
How to Do Appalachian Clogging by Thomas W. Hinds
Clog Dance in the Appalachians by Jerry Duke
Clog steps for Beginners by Geoff Hughes
Of these, only Appalachian Clogging and Flatfooting is available directly from Amazon, but I think you can order the others through them, too somehow. I have never read any of these books and do not endorse them. Also check your local library if they don't have it, they may be able to order it for you.
As for videos http://www.radix.net/~jmangin/clogging/welcome.html reviews some clogging videos and books. It also lists how you can go about ordering them.
sells a video which apparently teaches some clogging. As with the
books, I've never seen this tape and do not necessarily endorse it.
Q: Can I link my page to yours?
A: Please do.
Q: Will you add a link on your page to mine?
A: Of course. Send me an e-mail
and let me know you want me to add you and I'll be more than happy to.
Q: Can I use your page as a reference?
A: Please do. All of this information
is accurate. By accurate, I mean that it is exactly how I learned
it, so if some of it is absolutely wrong, one of my teachers has some 'splanin'
to do... =)
Q: Webpage suggestions?
A: Send me an e-mail with any specific questions,
I'll be more than happy to get back to you with suggestions.
