I am sure the Dutch are very sad. And the Iowans have very sore feet.

And if I lived in Iowa, I would have complained about the noise.

Since you asked for our comments, I am going to tell you what I first thought when I read your post:

Why is this in the politics section?

Exactly RARA, I checked the politics section and I found that it had been there, but was moved.

Sorry khan for going off topic. I didn't know what clog dancing was and I had to look it up. I thought it was called tap dancing.

The residents of a town in Iowa have broken the world record for clog dancing.

In order to set the Guinness world record they had to dance for five minutes without a break.

More than 2,500 people in the town of Pella danced for more than six minutes, breaking the previous record set by 475 people in The Netherlands in 2006.

But seriously, good for them. It must have been a very community bonding experience. Applause

Just a note--the "moved" indicator will only appear in the original sub-forum where the topic was erroneously placed, and it will show up at the time that Admin. moves it. Once the topic and its thread have been put into the correct sub-forum, there is nothing in the new location to indicate that it was previously moved from an incorrect one. (The topic name itself, along with the "moved" indicator, will remain in the original sub-forum for posterity.)

Many communities in the U.S. were originally formed by relatively homogeneous groups of settlers coming from the same village or county. In a fair number of cases traditions, such as traditional dances, have been relatively well conserved, sometimes even better than "back-home".

There are also a fair number of "folk-dance" groups in the U.S. These include groups of people who simply come together to learn traditional dances from many different countries and then dance them in a social setting. They also include performance groups, who enjoy exhibiting the dances on stage.

I would suspect that in this case there is a degree of heritage involved in the U.S. Iowan community.

Clog dancing is a favorite pastime of plumbers. Angel I think it originated with native American plumbers.

I watched people clog dancing once and they looked like they would feel better if they took a laxative, which is why I thought that is how it got its name. They looked like they were trying to shake something loose.

Maybe you can organise your town/city to reclaim the title for your Dutch half?

Clog Dancing:

A dance for joy that people all along the gulf coast will partake of if somehow that leaking oil well suddenly gets "clogged".

I knew someone would ask that. If you must know, it's the left half (on my mother's side actually).
