Not sure what clogging is?

Hesitant to join a class for fear it's not for you?

Then clog with Martha on line!

Martha was recognized as a clogging "expert" by a company called Knowlera Media, who sent a professional filmmaker to Green Acres Center to tape her clogging. The videographer edited and produced ten "mini" clogging videos, which were put on www.monkeysee.com, Knowlera's new web site where consumers can access thousands of free how-to videos. After clicking on the site, just type in hemingway in the search box, and you can clog along with Martha. She teaches 16 beginning clogging steps - just a few of the steps new dancers learn in her Clogging I class. This gives you a chance to experience clogging firsthand. Give it a try!
