The Granite State Cloggers (GSC) are a fun group of people who like to dance. You may have seen us perform at county and state fairs in New England such as the Warner Fall Foliage Festival, or perhaps you saw us at a nursing home during the holidays. We are a non-profit club organization featuring a performance team that travels to demonstrations.
So we’re fun and we like to dance, but what makes us cloggers?
Clogging is a type of dance. Wooden shoes are not involved (though the team does wear funny outfits). The best way I describe it to people is as a type of tap dancing. The shoes we dance in are like tap shoes (with a metal plate at the toe and heel), but there is a second metal plate attached to each. When we dance, this second plate creates a “double tap” sound. You may have also seen clogging on TV; there have recently been clog dancers who performed on America’s Got Talent and So You Think You Can Dance. Country music is the base of what GSC dances to, but we also mix in oldies, disco, and even some contemporary and hip-hop songs.
GSC is open to everyone. You do not need any dance experience to come join us!
