Cultural Dances
What is Cultural Dance?
American Cultural Dance
By: Manahel Zulfiqar

What is Cultural Dance?
A cultural dance is a dance from a specific country or culture. The 2 cultural that I chose for my dance presentation are American cultural dance and Punjabi Cultural dance.
Punjabi Cultural Dance
History of Clog dance
Bhangra means a person intoxicated with joy!.
Bhangra is one of the most vibrant, energetic, colorful, lively and explosive forms of dance today. It emerged from the Punjab region of India, hundreds of years ago.
Bhangra is undeniably, a very rich art form, originating from the folk traditions, warriors and legends of the Punjab.
Bhangra dance and music have a strong influence on each other’s development.
Bhangra dances for the women are called Giddha. The dance is fast-paced, and the dance movements enact different aspects of their domestic lives. The rhythm of the dance is based on the beating of drums and hand claps.
History of Bhangra
Bhangra is one of the popular dance in Punjab. Bhangra actually is a traditional form of dance and music which originates from the farmers of Punjab and region of India and Pakistan. Bhangra was at first used to celebrate harvest, but eventually began to be used in other celebrations such as weddings, special occasion and etc. It emerged from the Punjab region of India, hundreds of years ago. Bhangra is significant to Punjabi people all over the world because it symbolizes there imagination, talent and potential. Bhangra music is usually mixed with hip-pop, house and reggae.
The difference between the Bhangra of today and the Bhangra of the past is the fact that originally it was performed solely during festival celebrations, but today, the dance and music are performed in competitions, clubs, dance halls, arenas, and concerts as well. You will even find that music producers, as they take traditional folk dance and musical elements, and set them to modern dance music. Bhangra has come a long way in the 20th Century and has recently taken the entertainment industry by storm.



Clogging is a truly Ameriacn dance form that began in the Appalachian Mountains. Bascom Lamar Lunsford of Asheville, North Carolina, helped to popularize the art of team clogging by adding it as a category of competition in the annual Mountain Dance and Folk Festival held in Asheville during the late 1920's. The National Clogging and Hoe-down Council adopted the "Eight Basic Movements" of clogging on May 13, 1978 as a means of standardizing teaching methods.
Clogging has changed a lot since its humble beginnings in the Appalachian Mountains. The clogging steps have also changed, reflecting the influences of modern dance styles such as tap, Canadian Step Dancing, and even street dancing. In the 1980s, buck dancing, a more complicated form of clogging, emerged for the first time, and quickly became an important influence on the modern clogging style.



clogging was a means of personal expression in a land of newfound freedoms.
Clogging is a dance that is done in time with the music, to the downbeat usually with the heel keeping rhythm.

clogging evolved as an individual form of expression, with a person using his feet as an instrument to make rhythmic and percussive sounds to accompany the music.
Cloog is a original dance that was performed in wooden shoes.
