Up to 10 people

What you'll do

Keeping a beat with your feet will be our goal! We will start out with a few exercises to loosen up our ankles and legs. Next we will learn how to tap our toes and heels to make a whole beat, half beat and quarter beats. Once you have the basic steps ( which is all you need to know in order to buck dance), we will turn on the music and dance to a comfortable speed.
Half way thru we will take a short break to talk about the wonderful world of buck dancing.
During the second half you will be shown how to do a few fun steps to liven up your dance. Near the end you will be given a short demonstration.
Other things to note
I prefer children to be at least 9 years of age. All other ages are welcome. No one is ever too old to dance. Flat soles shoes are best. We also can dance in socks.

I am an Appalachian woods woman who loves to buck dance, or as some call it clogging, to some good old bluegrass. I have a nice big living room with an oak floor, in an old house, where I teach my fancy footwork regularly. I run a small local clogging team called The Kudzu Kickers. I am best known in the area and John C Campbell for my flat footing style.

Where you'll be

We will be dancing on an old oak floor in my living room which is located on a very quiet 12+ acres.

Jo's buck dancing class was beyond our expectations. My Grands had the best time at her very unique home in the woods of N. C. Jo is a very talented artist, making jewelry, furniture and artistic decor. All at very affordable prices. My Grands will forever have the best memories of this experience. Also as a side note. Jo lives with a special furr friend and I must say he stole our hearts and completed the fun time we all had learning to clog. Jo also invited us to come along to a folk contra (dance) and I only wish I could add a video! What a blessing that was for my Grands ages 14 and 11 respectively a girl and boy. It was a first for us and something we will never forget. We loved the whole experience and Jo.
