Clogging has its roots in the Appalachian Mountains and is a rhythmic, percussive, hoedown style and danced to most genres of music.

Maureen Pettit, and instructor with the Edmonds Senior Center, will have a class for beginners starting Thursday, Feb. 6. The class will be held at United Methodist Church, 828 Casper St., Edmonds, in the Fellowship Hall.

This class is offered as a program by the Edmonds Senior Center.

For the first class, participants can wear comfortable shoes; clogging shoes will be discussed at that first class. A drop-in rate will be charged each week, payable to the teacher.

Maureen has a distinguished dance background, primarily classical ballet. Born in Scotland and trained in England, she joined a London Ballet Company. Later she turned to musical theater and toured Europe with productions of “Kiss Me Kate,” “Brigadoon,” “7 Brides for 7 Brothers,” “Carousel,” and others.

She met her husband in Paris while dancing with the “Folies Bergere” and subsequently moved to Seattle. Maureen ran a ballet studio in West Seattle for many years and added clogging, International folk dancing and Scottish country dancing to her repertoire.

Maureen is a fully accredited teacher of ballet with the Royal Academy of Dancing, London, and a fully accredited ballroom dance teacher with I.S.T.D. Currently, she teaches clogging in Edmonds, Shoreline, and Lynnwood
