You might not have heard much about clogging before now, but it actually has its own rich history. The Clogging Champions of America are dedicated to helping future generations enjoy clogging as much as our predecessors did. The CCA even shares a little of clogging’s fascinating story:

“Clogging Champions of America was formed in 1997 to generate more activity and interest in clogging and competition, to promote a spirit of fun and fellowship, and to make sure the beginner clogger will get to enjoy competing as much as the clogger who has been in it for years.”

“The goal of CCA is to create an atmosphere of spirited and sportsmanlike competition, and to provide more opportunities for cloggers within the competitive and entertainment realms. Competition, CCA feels, is a healthy and entertaining part of clogging because it offers dancers the opportunity to travel to different locations – meeting new clogging friends, step sharing, and supporting each other competitively.”

As you can imagine, this organization takes its goal very seriously. Like any competition, rules and guidelines are necessary to keep the playing field even.

The CCA might be able to explain the nature of clogging, but you won’t find the secret to Tap This!’s success on their site. These dancers have rhythm and moves that can only be explained by natural talent and hard work.
