Bluegrass Clogging | Kentucky/Appalachian Culture

Host David Thurmond tells how clogging came to America and how shoes with taps evolved. He tells students to note that the dancing emphasizes movements below the waist and to look for movements that resemble square dancing. Champion cloggers Stacy McWethy, Trevor DeWitt, Cristy Corwin, and Zach Davis show off their skills to music by Hog Operation.
