Gumboot Dancing
from South Africa

Gumboot dancing was conceived by black miners in South Africa as an alternative to drumming which authorities restricted. The sound from the boot was used a code to communicate to another person a distance away. The dance is very energetic and involves clapping, stamping on the ground and tapping the boot to make different sounds. It is a great dance to introduce into a performance night or into other school activities.
