Our Dance

Clogging is a part of Southern Appalachian tradition, such as moonshine and outhouses. The name “clogging” itself comes from the European folk dances which were performed in wooden shoes called clogs. In America the wooden shoes were replaced with hobnail boots on wooden floors. Cloggers of today use metal taps on their shoes for a very distinctive sounds as they dance. In the early days of our country the barn dance was a place for courting, socializing and dancing to music played on fiddles, guitars and banjos. This type of music was a blend of Scottish, Irish and English styles. Today’s clogging includes many types, from big circle dances to the increasingly popular line dances. The steps may be traditional “flatfooting” or include fancy freestyle buck dancing.
