Dance

Be sure to stop by and enjoy our Dance Stage located along the Ohio River.  We will have a variety of energetic dancing including square dancing, clogging, line dancing, and a variety of other dance styles happening all weekend long. 

Dancing is an important part of the Appalachian Traditions

Traditional dancing in Appalachia includes several types: step dancing, set dancing, and couple dancing. Step dance traditions include clogging, buckdancing, flat-footing, and the Charleston. Set dances, involving two or more couples, include four couple squares, big set (ring) dances, reels, country (contra) dances, and play parties. Couple dancing often referred to as “round dancing,” includes the two-step and waltz. The roots of Appalachian dance are varied and include the influence of English, Scots-Irish, French, African-American, and Native American dances, as well as American popular culture.
