Can you do a little jig?

Can you Mountain Clogging, the Highland Jig, or do any kind of jig or dance of that type? I learned a couple of steps one time at a Mountain festival for Native American peoples cultures. It's fun, takes lots of energy and burns lots of calories. Since my accident, I haven't had the energy, I'm getting my energy back and I might try again. Don't think I cn jig very long, but it's the thought that counts, so I'm thinking about it.

My heart dances, but my feet have not been trained. My daughter was privileged to take a Highland Dance class when she was younger, and has helped with some choreographed groups that traveled in college. We have some cloggers locally. Hubby wanted me to join, but to keep our heads afloat I mostly work two jobs. He keeps losing his, not his fault, either. Those are other stories I could tell. Except for now, he is drawing early Social Security, working a low paying job, and I am working only seventeen hours average per week. I have asked for more hours, but they have not found me any. Anyway, that first sentence tells you where I am.

Thank you very much for taking this out of zero! Very nice response, we just started having classes of that type up here. I just learned my chugging back and forth from an old man who was just doing one step. Since then figured-out not only how to go forward and back, but sideways and backward and forward (reversed it). So I can go left and back, right and back, forward, and back ward. There are videotapes on the internet that are way cheaper than classes for Mountain Clogging, not sure about the Scottish and Irish kinds. Take care and thanks for your response.
