Plymouth is Hoppin' 

March 19, 2019

Plymouth is hoppin’ with Ukulele Club, Song Circle, Plymouth Knitters and Clog Dancing!

I thank Plymouth UCC for blessing me with space each Wednesday evening to embrace my passion clog dancing. I am honored and excited to share this form of dance. The beginner class graduated to Easy Intermediate (7 pm) and the entire class agrees clogging is great fun and needs to be shared. Easy and intermediate level classes enthusiastically agreed to share two clog dance routines during Coffee House, Saturday, March 30. 

Clogging, a North American folk dance, originated in the Appalachian Mountains. Irish, Scottish, English, Dutch and Germans who settled there in the mid-1700s all played a role in shaping this great form of dance which now enjoys widespread popularity throughout the United States and around the world. Music genres range from traditional bluegrass to modern hip hop. All steps are cued by the instructor, so there is no need to memorize. It’s great exercise and, since no partner is needed, the “exercise” level is completely up to you. The word “clog” means “time” in Gaelic. We use lace-up shoes similar to tap shoes; a full box is waiting to join the beat!

Plymouth offers another beginner class starting 6 pm, Wednesday, April 9. Free classes, free shoes, free parking! What have you got to lose? Come see us in action at the Coffee House, Saturday, March 30 and see for yourself. I guarantee you will be hooked! Questions? Email or call me, I would LOVE to tell you more! – Diane Jacobsen
