What is Clogging Dance? And Why It's the Coolest Thing Since Sliced Bread (No, Seriously)



Hey there, all you future clogging superstars! It's Courtney, here to spill the beans on why clogging is hands down the coolest dance style around. And no, I'm not just saying that because it's the course I teach at YouDance.com—okay, maybe I am a little biased, but can you blame me?


In the clogging course, we'll answer the questions - Where did clogging come from? When did clogging dance start? Now, let's quickly dive into some seriously fascinating clogging history, shall we? During the Industrial Revolution era in England, cotton mills were are all the rage. These mills are kept damp to help with the cotton spinning process, and guess what? Workers start wearing wooden clogs to keep their feet from getting soaked. But here's where it gets interesting—these crafty workers start tapping rhythms to the beat of the mills, and voila! Clogging is born. Talk about turning work into play, am I right?


But don't worry, we're not stuck in the past here. Oh no, we're all about modernizing clogging and making it as hip and trendy as can be.



Say goodbye to wooden shoes and folk music—hello, contemporary beats and cool-kid tunes! Trust me, you'll be tapping your way into the hearts of everyone on the block in no time.


Now, let's talk sweat. Yep, you heard me right—sweat.



Because clogging isn't just a dance, it's a full-on workout. We're talking cardio, strength training, and a whole lot of fun rolled into one. So if you're looking to get fit while busting a move, clogging is where it's at.


In the Clogging course at YouDance.com, you will become an expert in rhythm. You will learn why dancers only count to eight as well as how to find the beat. We have an entire course dedicated to helping you master the basics of Clogging!


And hey, did I mention you don't need fancy clogging shoes to get started? Nope, all you need is a sturdy pair of kicks and a whole lot of enthusiasm.



Whether you're a kid looking to shake things up or a grown-up wanting to relive your glory days, clogging is for everyone!


Oh, and speaking of glory days, let's talk credentials. Yours truly has been rocking the clogging scene since way back in 2008. I've toured Europe leading a troupe of cloggers, ranked #1 in competitions, and performed on the college dance team.
