Officially known as the Reading Traditional and Step Dance Group, the Reading Cloggies are dedicated to the preservation and recreation of traditional English and Scottish dancing. Dressed in typical clothing of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the troupe expertly demonstrates the full spectrum of British dance.
