bernstein iraIra Bernstein is regarded as one of the most versatile and accomplished performers of percussive step dancing (clog, tap and step dancing) in America, and in particular as one of the foremost southern Appalachian flatfooters in the world. His repertoire is a wide array of dances that all share a common thread: the production of rhythmic, percussive sounds. The dances are more than movements accompanied by music; they are movements that make music, and as such, they are part of the music. In a very literal sense, IRA is a drummer: his feet are the sticks and the floor is the drum, which is why he refers to his art as TEN TOE PERCUSSION.
