"As much as I enjoy country music, I am not drawn to it when it comes to choreography. I mostly enjoy hip hop and prefer having a reggae or other international feel to it. To me, the spirit of clogging is in its ability to integrate some movement vocabulary from other cultures. This is how clogging was formed and continues to grow. By finding music that is culturally different, I have the opportunity to study new types of movement and integrate it into the clogging vocabulary. My hope is that some of these steps gain popularity in the community and find their way into the works of other choreographers."
"I enjoy clogging to all kinds of music, from bluegrass to pop. When it comes to choreography, I like to pick a song that makes me want to get up and dance. For me that is typically a happy, upbeat song. I will choose steps that are easy or hard depending on how fast the tempo of the music is. Since I started out as a tap dancer, I tend to like to write advanced dances that have some element of tap steps in them. However, I also love to write easy dances that everyone can get up and dance to because I feel that one of the best parts of clogging is dancing together with friends new and old."
