Clogging presentations will be held at the True Blue Stage on Saturday as well as in between various performers on both the Main and True Blue Stages on both Saturday and Sunday. The workshops and presentations are undertaken and coordinated by qualified cloggers. All are welcome to cheer on the seasoned cloggers during the presentations on stage!
Clogging is a type of country-folk dance with roots in traditional European dancing, early African-American dance and traditional Cherokee dance in which the dancer's footwear is used musically by striking the heel, the toe, or both in unison against a floor or each other to create audible percussive rhythms. Clogging was social dance in the American Appalachian Mountains as early as the 1700s and from here has spread worldwide. Other forms of dance like tap and jazz styles owe much to clogging and its country roots.
