The Tennessee traditional dance of clogging originated in the southern Appalachian mountains, and was brought in by the Scottish and Irish settlers. The original form of clogging was the act of coupled dancers executing individual step dances together in group configurations, and the footwork was more spontaneous. Modern cloggers synchronize their steps, which emphasizes the unison of the footwork. The Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area hosts numerous festivals throughout the year.
