The Walworth County Cloggers will be performing on Saturady at 4:00 PM
What is Clogging?
Clogging is a PERCUSSIVE DANCE FORM — so yes, it is similar to tap, irish and canadian step dance. But clogging is more than that. Clogging is very much a part of our American heritage. It began in the Appalachian Mountain region and was brought to America by Irish, Scottish, English and Dutch Germans who settled there in the mid 1700s. The settlers shared dances from their home countries and new ‘combined’ forms of dance began to evolve. Our Native Americans, African Americans and even gypsies added to the evolution of this unique dance. And the evolution continued. Canadian step dance, tap and jazz dance have influenced how clogging changed over time. And we still see this evolution — with influences from street dance, hip-hop and more making thier way into the clogging routines of today.
It’s going to be a fun event to attend. Please join us.
