Hi!  My name is Ginny Bartes and I’ve been clogging since November of 1991, when I walked into a clogging class, heard the music & sounds, saw the dance and I’ve been hooked ever since.  They say that once you get clogging into your blood, you never get it out.  Here I am, 25 years later, still loving clogging, so I’ll have to believe that saying is true. Tried to get it out of my blood, but it just refuses to leave. MY EMAIL IS: dsrsaz@gmail.com

I created this website to spread good news about clogging in and around Arizona. It is my goal to promote clogging in Arizona and open the lines of communication among cloggers. As you go through the site, please contact me at dsrsaz@gmail.com if you have any questions.
