The Longview DownHome Cloggers are the largest clogging group in Texas. They travel the country performing and are now welcoming new members.

Today they taught people how to clog and shared the history of the dance.

"Clogging started in Ireland and was originally for men." Director Ellen Lane said. "When it was brought over to the United States, women started to clog."

Lane also tells me how clogging is more than fun, it's a great way to exercise.

Currently the group has 18 members and would like to grow. To learn more about clogging and joining the group please contact Karen Smith at 903-649-2652.
