WHAT is Clogging?

Leave a comment

Clogging is a truly American dance form that began in the Appalachian Mountains and now enjoys widespread popularity throughout tile (United States and around the world. As the Appalachians were settled in the mid 1700’s by the Irish, Scottish, English and Dutch-Germans, the folk dances of each area met and began to combine in an impromptu foot-tapping style, the beginning of clog dancing as we know it today. The word “Clog” comes from the Gaelic, and means “time”. Clogging is a dance that is done in time with the music -to the downbeat usually with the heel keeping rhythm.
