Pat's Clogging Studios is owned by Kevin and Pat Dennis of Springfield, Missouri.

Pat began teaching in 1986, becoming a fulltime instructor by 1987.  Her original group was known as the "Lockwood Cloggers," located in Lockwood, MO. The club began with only a few and met in the community room at the Boatman's Bank. (1st class met Friday, February 28, 1986----with Pat's instructor, Pat Skinner, giving an introductory lesson)

Lessons were then given on Pat's porch, a rented building next to city hall, then on to an old renovated Opry House where classes and performances were done "on stage".  The Lockwood Cloggers occupied "The Theatre of Performing Arts" as it was called from Nov. 1987 to Jan. 1990.

In Jan. 1990 they moved to a new studio built north of Lockwood.  It was added onto in 1991.  At the Lockwood Studio over 20 different communities were represented.

In Nov. 1992 a studio was constructed north of Springfield - both Lockwood and Springfield studios continued to operate until mid 1993.

Pat sold the Lockwood studio, and continued operating the Springfield studio weekly.  She teaches spring and fall semester classes for Ozarks Technical Community College.

Kevin and Pat opened a new studio location on January 3rd, 2001 in the Glen Ridge Center in Springfield.  

We closed the the Glen Ridge Center studio in October of 2006, and have moved into the new renovated studio located near our home.  This location has more room, computer controlled sound, & multimedia center, with a 96" X  69" screen to view support material for teaching.

Pat also has had the privilege of teaching at the Folk Center in Mt. View, Arkansas during the Dance Weekend held in September annually.  She has taught there since 1995.

Besides teaching Pat writes choreography and is also a competition judge.

Pat enjoys teaching large groups or private lessons to young and young at heart.
