Ren Bannerman, son of the renowned Glenn Bannerman family, toured the United States in the summer of 1982 teaching Appalachian clog and big circle dancing.

Ren was born into this culture, along with the rest of the family. His parents not only pioneered in that field but are also noted instructors. They come from "them thar hills." Thus, the material he teaches is traditional.

Ren knows the spirit and the history of the people and the dance style. He also has films which Glenn collected through the years. With his father, Ren taught at Steve Zalph's "Festival of the Americas" in New York City.

Dances Ren has taught include Appalachian clog, Big Circle Dancing and Buck Dancing.
