CLOG DANCE FOR SCHOOLS

Clog dance is part of Britain’s cultural heritage – a link with the Victorians and the Industrial Revolution. A clog dance workshop is an excellent way to bring this heritage alive as every child has a pair of clogs to wear.

Alex can offer clog dance workshops for all key stages.

Clog Dance Taster-Sessions

  • A day or half-day clog dance taster-session includes:-
  • A 20 minute presentation introducing pupils to clogs, music and clog-dancing. (This could be for one class or the whole school).
  • Up to four workshops with class groups (max. 30 pupils)
  • Workshops need to be 1 hour in length.
  • CLOGS ARE PROVIDED.

“Really well organized and fun – the children all thoroughly enjoyed it and achieved so much within the hour”. (Clog Dance taster day at St Matthew’s Primary School, Blackburn, Lancashire 2008)

“I loved the bit where we did the clicking heels”. (Year 3 pupil - taster day at St John’s Primary School, Coppull, Lancashire 2009)

Project Residency

For a longer residency, Alex can work with one class group to develop pupils’ skill and creativity into an exciting performance. The piece will involve the whole class and will explore different rhythms and tempos. The final performance will be accompanied by live music. A minimum of four sessions is advisable to achieve this.

“The children looked forward to the clog dancing sessions every week and were sorry when the project finished. It was equally enjoyed by both boys and girls and was excellent for their co-ordination and team work”. (Moss Side Primary School, Leyland, Lancashire. CLOGMANIA! 2006)

“I really enjoyed the clog dancing lessons with Alex because they were very good and interesting. I hope to do it again sometime.” (Lois, Year 6 Moss Side Primary School, Leyland, Lancashire. CLOGMANIA! 2006
