Appalachian dancing originates from traditional English, Irish and Scottish clogging and stepping styles as danced by the immigrants who settled in the Appalachian Mountains in North America. The dance evolved in remote mountain communities and incorporated steps from the dance style of native Indians and former slaves.
Mind the Step was formed in 1990 by a group of dancers wanting to “do something different “ and we have been performing our unique style of Appalachian dancing ever since! We choreograph all our own dances using traditional Appalachian clogging, stepping and flatfooting styles drawing inspiration from many sources ranging from the American flag in a dance called Liberty to the name of the local pub in Windmills. This energetic and exciting dance form will take your breath away, both dancers and spectators alike!
