It was an exciting day at the nursing home, as we had the West End Cloggers come and perform some special dance numbers.

In case you are not familiar with clogging, as I was not, I have included a you tube video. The majority of the residents who I invited to attend were not familiar with the clog dance. "Fogging? What's that?!" I resorted to explaining the event as "women dancers"...which incidently helped to increase the audience numbers.

NOTE: The West End Cloggers are not young, agile men, but rather women in their more formative years. I was personally quite impressed with their moves...

ha ha, I love the video you chose to demonstrate what clogging is.... I think most people would associate it with this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cs2j8f7H2WY

You can see the Riverdance influence on your cloggers.
So how were they?
I remember watching my first clogging show in AZ. It was a 4-H fair and I confess, I was in tears after watching them. Yes, my little southern roots were awakened, and I was moved by such lovely dancing...
I like ballet, and I like modern, but get me in a room with fiddles and some cloggers and I won't be able to contain my joy;)
Needless to say, I was in the line up to take lessons. So if you ever want to learn a little clogging, just phone me up! ;)
