My name is Shirley Brown and I am a Certified Clogging Instructor . I have been teaching clogging since l985. My first clogging group was the Ontario Rhythm Cloggers out of Toronto. I took lessons from a wonderful instructor for three years before adventuring out on my own.
I started a group called “The Simcoe County Cloggers” where I held classes in Elmvale, Penetang and Orillia. I then formed an exhibition team called “Swingin” County”. We performed all over at grand openings, fall fairs, nursing homes and clogging conventions. My biggest adventure was taking the team to perform at the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE) for 5 consecutive years to represent Canada.
I teach a fun loving group of active seniors who look forward to their weekly lesson. I teach the traditional style of Clogging being performed to Country, Bluegrass, Rock and Pop music. My dancers are anxious to learn new steps and new music. People ask me why clog?
I reply “Why Not!”
Everyone should enjoy and experience the fun of Clogging .
