About your host

Shelby is known for bluegrass and barbecue! After visiting the Earl Scruggs Center and learning all about great regional music, take your toe tapping to the next level with a clogging lesson. I grew up in North Carolina listening to country, bluegrass, and old-time music. I've danced and sung at Swannanoa Gathering's Old-TIme week for 20 summers. My favorite thing to do is teach beginning…

What we’ll do

We will listen to snippets of bluegrass and old time music. We will tap our toes and walk to the beat. We will learn terminology and the corresponding body movements. We will practice those body movements repeatedly (that is the key!) to different songs at different speeds. Questions always very welcome!

What else you should know

Zero dancing experience is A-OK! Make sure your shoes can slide a bit. Running-type shows are designed to stop your foot from sliding so will prove frustrating for dance.

What I’ll provide

Drinks
I will have water and flavored seltzer water available. Dancing makes you thirsty!

What to bring

Shoes that can slide a bit are best. Athletic type shoes do not work well. Flats, sperry-types, Jambu-type shoes work well.

Where you'll be

The lessons will take place in my spacious basement (which happens to also be listed on airbnb!). It has a laminate floor nice for dancing.

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 5 guests ages 8 and up can attend.

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

What to bring

Shoes that can slide a bit are best. Athletic type shoes do not work well. Flats, sperry-types, Jambu-type shoes work well.
