Guest Instructor

Darolyn Pchajek (Dar) was born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, and has been clogging since the mid '90's. She started off with "Cut 'n Loose", and in 2000, Gerry Valois passed the group on to her, and she made it her own with the name "Dare to Clog". She loves teaching as it gives her such a thrill to watch her students catch on to new steps, and enjoy dancing a song, especially to one she's choreographed. Married to Stephen and the proud mom of Joshua, Grace and Andrew (15, 12 and 10 years old respectively), Dar taught clogging throughout all three pregnancies. Now all three children love music, and are heavily involved in dance themselves.

Dar loves to clog to all kinds of music and is excited to have her dances passed around other parts of Canada, USA, and more recently Germany, France, and Australia! She has her own YouTube Channel (daretoclog) where she showcases her choreography, and loves it when people around the world have watched one of her videos, and emailed her about it. For her extensive list of convention/workshop teaching credentials in Canada and USA, and much more information, check out her website www.daretoclog.com.
