Appalachian Clogging / Flatfooting Workshops

Flatfooting is a percussive dance style derived from the clogging of Scotch-Irish immigrants in and around the Appalachian mountains, blended with influences from the Africans and Cherokee Indians in that region. It is usually done to "old-time" mountain music.  While definitions vary, flatfooting is often distinguished from performance or competition clogging in that it is more free-form, individualized, and less choreographed.
