Ozark mountain stepping is the percussive step dance of the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas and Missouri. Sometimes calling "jigging", it is a close cousin of Appalachian Flatfooting with added bits of Buck Dancing and old style tap dance. Many of the movements are shared with flatfooting, and for the new dancer the Basic Flatfoot section below is the place to start. The basic flatfoot video tutorials in this section will take you from the chug-drag through the flatfooter's basic up to the 4-count walking step.
Intermediate Step Dance has many of the toe-heel combinations from Buck dancing, as well as unique combinations. These steps will use a basic framework of the 4-count flatfooting step.
