There are so many different styles of dance out there.
From every nation, culture, and people, one will find a variety of traditional dances which when combined with other forms give birth to a new dance form. It’s been that way for centuries. And while styles vary, all of them require fancy footwork, attention to detail, and crazy levels of fitness.
Dancing has captivated each and every generation.

The Thomas sisters are well known in the clog dancing world.
Here they are in identical outfits with matching hairstyles and all. Backs to the crowd and ready to light up the stage, the music comes on and what follows is a routine that is so quick and full of energy yet easy for the eyes to follow.
This is the Clogging Champions of America and these sisters are out to prove themselves. Just look at those moves!YouTube Screenshot Source: YouTube Screenshot
Everyone did a double take at the double vision they were experiencing.
You and everyone else are forgiven for thinking that the sisters are identical twins. They certainly look alike especially with the matching outfits. They are the clearest double vision anyone has seen. However, Lauren is the older sister with several years between her and Kaylee._the_thomassisters_/Instagram Source: _the_thomassisters_/Instagram
There is no denying the similarities though.
Clogging is Kentucky’s official state dance and is a part of Appalachian culture. Not to be mistaken with tap dancing, cloggers move with an up and down motion with most sounds coming from their heels. The moves are more flat-footed and based on the beat too. Tap dancers stay as light on their feet as possible and dance to the melody of the music.YouTube Screenshot Source: YouTube Screenshot
Lauren and Kaylee jump and spin to a fun paced bluegrass song and it’s a perfect match to their routine.
The sisters are champion dancers who have entertained lots of fans and set stages on fire over the many years of their dancing. Lauren began clogging at the age of three with Kaylee starting at five. These two are clogging royalty!
Back in 2012, the sisters appeared on the Nickelodeon game show Figure it out and in 2018 took their talents to an episode of The Gong show with an act of theirs called “The Terror Tap Twins”. They’ve been places.YouTube Screenshot Source: YouTube Screenshot
The Thomas sisters have the crowd clapping and cheering.
The Clogging Champions of America were founded in 1997 and have plans of creating more interest in the style of dance all the while promoting fiun and fellowship through their activities. Their aim is an atmosphere of competition that provides more opportunities for cloggers while remaining fun and competitive.
