This category contains English language sites relating to folk dancing styles from the Netherlands. It should be noted that Flemish and Dutch culture, while sharing similarities, are distinct. Flemish folk dance includes a variety of other styles (sword, May-tree, stick dances). Dutch traditional folk-dancing (or farmer's dancing) consists of the local dances overlaid with the common European heritage (i.e. polkas, waltzes, etc.). The period preserved tends to be around the 1900's and are mainly couples dances. The non-couple dances are older. Though one of the features of many Dutch dances is that they were done while wearing clogs, it should be realized that these were not universal, particularly in towns and the wealthier parts of Society. The same dance would be carried out in different styles depending on the footwear of the dancers. However the clog dances are identifiable by the style of foot placement that takes advantage of and compensates for their rigidity and percussive effects.
