HISTORY OF TEXAS CLOGGING

CLOGGING, an American folk dance, was introduced to Texans in the early 1970's. Wade and Gloria Driver brought clogging to Houston, Texas in 1973. They began teaching the clog steps they learned from "Big" John Walter in Alabama. A few years later, Judy Harrington moved to Dallas, Texas, and offered to that area much of the same style of clogging presented by the Drivers, perhaps an influence of their early clogging days together in Alabama.

In 1976, Deloris Breske offered clogging lessons in San Antonio, Texas, and presented Appalachian-style clogging to the South Texas area. These were the first well-spent and strategically important efforts in the early development of Texas Clogging. 

Today, many different styles influence the dancers of Texas; Buck, Canadian, Irish, Jazz, Country Swing, Hip-hop, Square and Round Dance.  Clogging has proven to be the melting pot of all dance forms and styles.  While Texas clogging has changed over the last couple of decades, the dancers have not changed their love to learn more and share it with others.
