Black Gold Cloggers in Central Park

The Black Gold Cloggers demonstration team from Bakersfield is led by Loni and was established 39 years ago.

The members of BGC come from the clogging class, which is offered by Bakersfield Recreation and Parks. We meet at Silver Creek Recreation Center, 7011 Harris Rd., Bakersfield, each Thursday evening from 6:30 until 8:30 p.m. All ages, from 7 years on up, are welcomed. You can come any Thursday evening to see what we do. Then if you think you would like to learn this energetic dance form, come to our beginner class. We would love to have you.

If you already clog, join our class any time. You can find more information about our club at http://www.blackgoldcloggers.webs.com.

Clogging is a percussive dance form. We dance to any music with a good eight count beat. You do not need a partner, and the dances are cued as in square dancing. Even as a beginner, you will be doing a dance the first evening of class. As you learn more and more steps, you will learn more and more dances. It is a process of building on a foundation. Loni will help you do this.

We enjoy what we do and are excited to dance at the Tehachapi Mountain Festival again this year. Thank you for having us.
