Probably there is not a single person out there that can resist a good beat. We all enjoy good song and music that makes us feel special. Wherever and whenever we hear a great song, our body starts moving like we are on the dance floor. Simple dance requires simple moves and less efforts in order to perform the act perfectly. But, even simple moves can make us sometimes breathe heavily. Image a person dancing with a planned choreography and difficult body movements? That must be so exhausting.
Clogging is undoubtedly one of those very difficult, but extremely amusing dancing acts. To many clogging doesn’t sound funny, while for others it is a very interesting and difficult dance that involves lot of physical efforts. However, clogging is very cool and since it’s not a very commonly performed dance, knowing how to clog is a ‘personal superpower’ for showing off. This dance is a combination of energetic moves and addictive rhythm and leaves no one indifferent.
Mastering clog dance is not an easy task. It’s a challenging thing to do. Whether you clog solo or in a group, several things should be considered in order to dance like a professional. Clogging requires lots of discipline, attention to details and collaboration with the co-dancers. The synchronisation of the movements and the energy of the dancers is what impress people. Tap This! are masters of clogging and they show us how to combine all these things in order to impress the audience.
On first glance, clogging looks very similar to the well-known tap dancing. However, these two dances, even though they appear similar, are in fact very different. The crucial difference between these two dances is that clogging is usually performed in line formation. Furthermore, these dances differ in the dancers’ outfit. Cloggers do not have metal soles on their shoes.
