Map Of Appalachian Region Clogging is a type of folk dance where the footwear is used with the heal, the toe, or both against any floor. Clogging is considered as the first form of street dance because it was danced mostly in urban environments. Clogging is for anyone but more from people from the United Kingdom and The Netherlands. Its more of their style of dancing and music. Also African Americans would also clog because of the rhythm and the beat of the song and the dancing. Clogging was more for fun because everyone would learn how to do it and it was a tradition for you to learn how to clog in some countries. People would also do it for special occasions like weddings and birthdays. It was a tradition to learn how to clog in places like Chesire and Yorkshire (England). Still today, people still do it for fun. It isn't the same as tap dancing, but it is very similar. The only difference is that tap shoes are medal souls and clogs are wooden. Clogging originated from the Appalachian region of the U.S. It was developed through a combination of dances from people from Scotland, Ireland, England & Holland. By putting those dances together, it created clogging. This dance came to North America from the people from Ireland and England etc. and they put all their dance styles together to form clogging. After that, it was travelled over to America and just started to attract around North America. The cultural group that began clogging were the places in Europe like England and the Netherlands. Where Would People Clog?
