Just LOVE Clogging, if was asked to sum it up! After 25 years of playing soccer, the injuries became too difficult to recover from. So I was in search of some form of dancing to replace my passion for soccer.
Twenty years ago that discovery came at a Festival of Dances held in Camarillo. The cadence of the Cloggers performing struck me with excitement, I just had to be up there with them. And a year later I was performing with the Conejo Valley Cloggers Exhibition Team. Five years after that I wanted to teach and cue clogging. Mentored by Julie Morris, I started teaching my own classes, working with kids, then to teaching adults.
Clogging is an excellent physical and mental challenge with endless learning, and it’s feel good fun for the soul!. The Conejo Valley Cloggers are like family, and we ALL look forward to seeing each other every week!
My first introduction to clogging was in the Parks and Recs catalog. I’d never heard of it, but I thought it would be a fun thing to do with my 11 year old daughter. After the first few sessions we knew we loved it, and that was 20 years ago.
We were asked to join the Conejo Valley Cloggers exhibition team and enjoyed performing for community events for the next 10 years. The clogging group has become a great social weekly event where I get exercise and mind challenges.
The opportunity to co-teach with Evy arose a few years ago, and I jumped at the challenge. I like sharing my love of dance, and helping people to learn something new and stay active.
