Bill Nichols is known as “one of the most influential figures in the history of clog dancing and is known as the “Grandfather of Modern Clogging.” Bill was born into humble beginnings and became a very respected transformational leader. He created a movement that has elevated a regional recreational activity to a national competitive platform with international acclaim.

This book examines the economic conditions, cultural aspects, influential people, and poignant situations which gave rise to his transformational leadership style. Additionally, the content chronicles how the American folk dance has evolved in reaction to changes in consumer preference regarding music and entertainment. Included within the pages is an analysis of how Bill’s accomplishments, his identity as a Christian, his role as father and husband, his expertise as a photographer, and his pride in being a Western North Carolina / East Tennessee native developed and formed his point of view.


"This book, as told through the eyes of a daughter and a skilled clog dancer/entertainer/teacher, is a bountiful gift to those who are lovers of the Appalachian folk dance of clogging and of those who have contributed to its heritage." - Amy Ammons Garza
