Since I am a country gal I guess I should say I am 'Buck Dancing' or sometimes called 'Flat Footin' here at the Foothills of the Smokies.

"Buck dancing" was one of clogging's early names because it was simply a generic name for any kind of fast-footed solo (and is still used among old-time tap dancers to describe a kind of easy, flat-footed tap style). Among cloggers, buck dancing now refers to a special fancy kind of clogging in which the dancer does the basic clogging steps, but with the addition of extra little kicks, shuffles, taps, etc. to generate two or three times as many sounds per beat as the steps make when conventionally executed.

Disclaimer: I can't dance.....if I do anything, the free spirit in me emerges......who looks more like a mad woman stomping around at a Sunday tent revival....arms in the air & a smile on the face.  If you see a silly woman with paint on her face, in her hair and on her clothes dancing on Gay street...don't call KPD or Lakeshore....It's just me having a free spirit moment and 'Buck' Feet!

 I can't dance & I can't sing....therefore, I PAINT!

Thanks for Visiting!
