Clogging  Clogging, an enjoyable and healthy dance form, has been around for hundreds of years.  It originated in the Appalachian Mountains of the United States. There, the early settlers from Holland, Germany, England, Scotland, Ireland and Africa combined their dance traditions. They called it buck dancing, flat footing or just plain dancing'.  It was usually done to live fiddle music.  Clogging and tap dancing have common roots.  The clog dance became the country cousin of tap.  Tap is high impact while clogging is low.  The clog dance is continually in a state of change and improvisation such that today it is performed not only to country and bluegrass music but also to pop, jazz and rap.
