Experience the enthusiasm, high-energy and excitement of the Carroll County Cloggers as they demonstrate the art of clogging that came to America via English, German, Scottish and Irish settlers. What is clogging, you ask? Clogging is derived from folk dances made popular in the Appalachian Mountains in the 1800s, but new influences are coming from multiple styles of dance such as tap dancing, Irish hard shoe, and even street dancing and hip-hop. Rain date 5/12/18. A Celebrating America program.
