Flat-foot Dancing!
On the stage in Millennium Theater
3:00 – 5:00 pm Flat-foot Dancing 101 with Travis Paul Anderegg
This flat-foot / buck dance course is designed to bring out your cheerful nature! These steps from Tennessee, North Carolina, and Virginia have been obtained from live people and through videos of people passed away. You will be introduced to simple steps with an emphasis on timing and then progress to more complex steps. We’ll help you incorporate what you have learned into your own unique style of dance during freestyle sessions.
Paul Anderegg dances an old time style of clogging known as flat-footing or buck dancing. He has won numerous awards for his old time style and is based in Old Fort, North Caroline. He does classes, performances, interpretive programs, demonstrations, and has a DVD instructional video. He has done programs at the Blue Ridge Folklife Festival and danced at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC.
