Flatfoot and Fancy Free
Color business card for Rebecca Stout.
Los Angeles-based Appalachian flatfoot dance instructor Rebecca Stout began clogging as a child in Cordele, Georgia, as part of the precision dance team The Dixieland Cloggers. She went on to spend the next three decades developing and fine-tuning her unique “Tennessee Shuffle” style of free-form flatfoot and buck dance, inspired by friends, relations, masters and mentors throughout Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky and West Virginia. She teaches and performs traditional Appalachian dance with a focus on dance as a percussive instrument.
