San Francisco Clogging Classes

Clogging is a fun American folk dance similar to tap dancing, but with a much more relaxed, bucolic feel. Our classes are fun and laid back with students of all ages and walks of life. We dance to many types of music from the traditional bluegrass to contemporary hip hop, and don't be surprised to hear tunes from other parts of the world like Hawaii and Algeria! Everything is fair game, we even take requests...
