Where are Silver Creek Clogging classes held?

Silver Creek Clogging classes are held at the Silverton Grange Hall: 201 Division Street in Silverton, Oregon.  We transform the Grange into our own studio space each week with a special clogging dance floor and mirrors.  Class Schedule and information can be found here.

Who can participate in clogging?

Clogging is a great activity for boys and girls of all ages. We have classes for youth and adults students ages 6 and older.

Register for classes here: Silver Creek Clogging Registration Page

How do I pay my student’s tuition?

Payments are accepted online via credit card at the time of Registration.

There are two payment plan options:

  1. Full-academic year: Pay the full tuition in advance.
  2. Monthly: Pay tuition in equal monthly installments. The 1st installment is due at registration and must be made to confirm your student’s spot in class. The remaining payments occur monthly on the 1st of each month after classes begin.
Where do I get clogging shoes?

Participation in class at Silver Creek Clogging requires white oxford style lace up shoes with buck clogging taps installed.  Clogging shoes are not included in the pricing structure.

For beginning students, we sometimes have used shoes available for rent at the studio. Contact us for info on current sizes available.

Intermediate level cloggers, and above, are required to have white oxford style lace up split-soled clogging shoes.

Silver Creek Clogging students can order split-soled shoes for pick up at the studio by clicking here.

For shoes without taps installed, the studio carries glue-on buck taps for purchase.

Shoe and tap orders can sometimes be delayed during high demand timeframes.

Clogging shoes make a wonderful noise that really adds to the experience of clogging, so be sure to plan ahead to ensure your student secures shoes by the second day of class.

 

How much do costumes cost?

Fees for recital costumes and the studio t-shirt are part of our inclusive tuition pricing structure.  There are no additional fees for either the recital costumes or the studio t-shirt (which may be worn as a costume during performances in the community).

What opportunities are there for dancers to perform?

Performing is essential to a student’s growth both as a dancer and in their self confidence. Each student will perform in the annual recital in June. In addition, there will be at least two additional opportunities for each student to perform during the academic year. We generally hold a winter showcase recital, a year end recital, and at least one performance in the community.

As community performance opportunities are available within the community during the summer, we will announce them via email and in class.

We love sharing clogging with our community!

What should students wear/bring to class?

Students should wear comfortable clothing that allows them to move freely and comfortably during this extremely active and energetic form of dance.

Jeans and denim pants/shorts are not allowed for students at an intermediate level or higher.

Students should bring water in a spill-proof bottle and should always bring their clogging shoes and socks.

Of course, smiles and energy are always welcomed in class!

What is your attendance policy?

Regular class attendance is necessary for a student’s development and progress.  Students who miss classes should not be expected to progress at a steady pace.

Students should arrive at least 5 minutes before class to put on their clogging shoes and be prepared to begin dancing at the start of the class period. Parents should pick up their children promptly at the end of class.

If your student must be be absent, please let us know via email or text message no later than one hour in advance of the scheduled class period.

If a student misses class, it is his or her responsibility to learn any material taught during the absence.

We do not use regular class time to reteach material in detail for students who have missed a class period.

Although we briefly review and/or troubleshoot material taught during previous class periods, we do not reteach steps in detail for students who miss classes.

Students who miss a class period should plan to get together with their classmates to learn anything missed and/or schedule a private lesson with the instructor to make up any missed material.  Students can also take a video of the instructor demonstrating steps taught during class, and the instructor will occasionally post videos of instruction materials to the class DropBox for class member review.

There are no refunds or credits for missed class periods.

What is your inclement weather policy?

Keep an eye on our Facebook page for news and up-to-date information with regards to emergency and/or weather related closures.
