Alumni

The 75 or so Geese alumni are affectionately known as “Goose Droppings.” Many are still active in the old-time scene as callers, clogging instructors, or musicians.

Below is a working list of alumni who have each made the Geese what they are today. If you are a Goose Dropping and your name is missing from this list, please contact us at clogginglessons@gmail.com. We’d love to hear from you!
