8 Clogging dancers stand in formation – show why they’re champions in seconds of first note

September 23rd, 2020

It’s not very often that people can tell a group of dancers is going to win a competition within just seconds of hearing the music’s first notes. But that’s what happened with a group of cloggers. They were immediately impressive but their performance only got better with each beat of the song.

Getting ready to perform

In 2016, a group of gals and guys took the stage to perform a dance routine. While the men had on black slacks, the women wore black skirts. To complete the look, they had matching blue tops. They first get into formation.

Then the music starts

With their backs still turned away from the audience, the second Andy Grammer’s song, “Honey I’m Good” begins to play, they start to bob up and down. While still in motion, these cloggers turn to the side and then to the front. Immediately, the crowd erupts in applause.

High energy

Early on in their performance, this group does an assortment of cool moves. They’re all really fast, which takes a lot of talent and stamina. They go from one side to another, doing awesome kicks.

On point

Not only are these dancers in perfect timing to the music but also each other. Although their feet are moving fast, they nail the choreography. While we have no idea how long these eight people have performed together, it’s clear they’re dedicated to giving an outstanding performance.

Unique dance style

Clogging, which is what this group does, is a type of folk dance. The dancers wear shoes that make a striking sound when hitting the floor. But in this case, the music was loud so it’s hard to hear that. Even so, it’s still an awesome performance.

Dang they’re good

After the initial applause, the audience remains quiet during the performance. Everyone in the room is completely mesmerized at the level of skill. Whether jumping, turning, or kicking, they don’t miss a single step.

Cool moves

If you’ve ever watched videos of cloggers, you probably notice that most of them repeat a lot of the same steps. But what makes this group of eight unique is they throw in some things that a lot of people don’t recognize. In other words, their dance is original

How do they do it?

Considering this video goes on for more than one minute and 21 seconds, it’s hard to imagine going full speed without dropping to the floor. But that’s what these dancers do. All the way to the end, their energy and precision never waver.
