sian, west wales Clogging question? (43) RE: Clogging question? 21 Apr 11


Excuse me, people, but there's quite a lot of clogging/stepping in Wales apart from the Eisteddfod. Huw Williams (of Huw & Tony Williams previously) does a lot of work in schools teaching the dance as part of the Welsh Curriculum. I've used him in a number of community projects as well, including a day of clogging in Cricieth on 10 June (come all ye). And he'll be running a clogging stream in our next big weekend event, 21 - 24 October so if you want a lot of instruction packed into a short period of time, that's for you.

Actually, clogging is the only _unbroken_ dance tradition in Wales, pavane. It survived thanks to the Welsh gypsies - primarily the Woods family. It's the Court Dances and Fair Dances that mostly had to be reinvented.
