Kate’s Mare

Posted by on Sunday, March 9th, 2008

I’ve been plotting a great trip out to Chicago for a dance weekend and visits with some wonderful friends, and I am giddy with excitement.  Giddy, I say!

And in that spirit, I figured I should hop online to post some clogging cue sheets.  Kate’s Mare is one of the coolest clogging steps I know, and it’s notated here, along with some other good ones.  Don’t worry if they make no sense to you–if you’re learning to clog with the peeps, I’ll explain it all next time we get together.  If you want to understand immediately but it’s making your head explode, email me.

And now I’m heading back to the sweat shop.  My lace cardigan has two full sleeves and six inches of body below them, and there are another 10 or 12 sock bags in progress on my sewing table.  And all of that counts as prep for replacing all of the floors, right?  Sure it does!  Using stash=cleaning.  Soon, I’ll even be able to dance in my fiber-arts studio.  Though clogging while sewing sounds mighty dangerous.

    Sounds like a hobbit drinking game. I’m in.
    Aside from that, it does sound fun. Do you have callers, or does everybody know what they’re supposed to do, like the Macarena, which I don’t know.
