Here some important things you need to know about starting clogging at RME.
TO REGISTER WITH RME, SIMPLY FILL OUT THE FORM BELOW.

RME is owned, directed and taught by Greg and Maria Tucker. We have won over 20 National Clogging Championships in individuals, duets and teams. We are both members of the Clogging Hall of Fame and have been dancing and clogging for over 25 years each. We both began teaching in the 1980's and eventually started our own studio called Rocky Mountain Express in 1998. We have toured and competed all over the world! Each year it gets better and better!

September Beginning Classes:

NEW SEPTEMBER BEGINNING CLASS! Ages 6-11

We get costumes for each team class which usually cost between $50 and $70, and the dancers will use these costumes throughout the year.

LOCATION
    We are located at 1200 North 415 West Studio A in Orem. (We are located on State Street and 1200 North, behind the Autozone.)
 
REQUIREMENTS
    Every dancer is asked to be to class each week. And attend performances and competitions when asked. We understand things come up, but the best dancers are those in class and on stage. Each class (except our first years) compete 2-4 times a year.  Each class usually has 2 shows in December (we have a large parents show around Christmas) and 2 shows in the spring including our huge Spring Spectacular (we often have around 1,000 people attending! It's a lot of fun! Each dancer is required to purchase a costume (see below) and a studio T-shirt usually around $15.
 
COSTUMES
    Each class has a costume for the entire year. Usually costs range from $40-$80 and they wear it to all shows and competitions (often from 3-10 times a year!). And we often use costumes for 2-3 years, so take care of it and the next year you may get to use it again, or sell it to another team.
 
SHOES
    We have lots of used shoes at the studio for sell. You are welcome to come and see if any of them fit. If you would like new shoes, you can buy them at Backstage Dancewear in South Jordan (801-446-0192). We often suggest beginners get WHITE canvas shoes (similar to what Keds used to look like - a leather or canvas shoe) and put taps on them. Shoes can be found at Wal-mart, Shopko, Target and taps are located at the Village Shoemaker at State Street and Center Street in Orem. Tell them the Tucker's sent you - He'll give you a great deal! You do not need shoes your first day in class, but it really helps. We don't use the shoes that have a strap on them anymore, we use only those with shoe laces.
 
PHILOSOPHY
    Our philosophy is simple. Clogging is fun and we love to perform, compete and have a great time! As much a social activity as a talent development, clogging allows us to have a great time while traveling, winning, and getting all dancers on stages all around. We believe it is important to perform so dance is enjoyed and to compete so dance is excelled. We also do all we can to make clogging fun. Just come to one of our classes!
 
COMMUNICATION
    Because we are a little busy at times (we teach our studio, we run America On Stage - the competition circuit here in the west) and run BYU's clogging program, we are often on the run. E-mail is easiest to reach us. We send out a newsletter each month with information required and a statement of all charges and payments on it. You are welcome to call us, but E-mail is always easiest for us (hence why you are reading this now!) We send out information by E-mail, text messages, updates on our website, updates on facebook, and by notes in class. Someway, we will get you the information!
 
HAVE MORE QUESTIONS?
    Just ask - again E-mail is best! Contact us by E-mail (click here - rmexpress@gmail.com) or by phone 801-224-8334
 
Thanks for your interest and we can't wait to get you on stage!
 
Greg and Maria
