Dancing Videos: Clogging

So the first question I received on my 'Curious?' post (here) was this:

'I would love for you to do a clogging vlog!! Seriously!' -Gentri Lee

At this point I am not going to make a vlog because 1) My computer doesn't have a camera (yes, yes my husbands does!) and 2) I don't have any cool choreography or steps to show but in reality I'm sure any step would be cool. BUT...I will sometime, but not now :) But don't be disappointed because I got two great videos from my Advanced Clogging class at BYU :) I took that class for my World Dance minor. Here ya go!

Michael Jackson "Black or White" -Choreography by Kaycie Foster & me
This was our final and don't laugh because sometimes we do funny things and I forget to pick up my hat at the end of the routine ;) We were acting famous and touching every one's hands like celebs do haha :) Oh, and I'm starting on the left. {You may recognize this video from a previous post here}
And here is another. I'm on the far right. This dance is kind of a marathon one haha.

Rihanna "Please Don't Stop the Music" -Choreography by instructors Greg & Maria Tucker
I started clogging when I was 8 years old and clogged for a long time until some time in junior high when I quit after I won Nationals. So yep my team and I are National Champions! :) We won in Orlando! Any who, I do miss it and maybe I'll get into it again, sometime. It is very fun and such a good workout, pure cardio! Maybe?!

What do you think about Clogging? Ever heard of it before?

  6. Awesome! This is so much fun! :] I actually had a boy cousin who did clogging. He did it a couple of times for us but it has been a long time since I've seen anyone do it! I love all types of dancing!!

  8. I would be exhausted after that Rhianna dance!! I used to do Irish dance and a lot of the moves are pretty similar. I once saw clogging on So You Think You Can Dance, someone auditioned doing clogging. But that's pretty much my only experience with it. PS National champion?!?! That's pretty darn cool!

  9. YAY!!! I can't believe I missed this post yesterday. I've waited so long! haha! I seriously love this! I have never been trained in clogging or anything similar, so it looks super hard to me. I could never do that. I'd get all tangled. haha! And ya, definitely looks like an insane workout! You are awesome!! have you ever wanted to teach? You should. :)
