What is fascinating about the tap challenge that took place between Colin Dunn and Savion Glover at the 1997 Grammy Awards is that Glover's style of tap dance, which he calls "hitting"—an unusually percussive combination of jazz and hip-hop dance rhythms that utilizes all parts of the foot to drum the floor—is radically different from Dunn's style of stepping, a highly musical and sleekly modern translation of traditional Irish step dancing.
Yet both of these dance forms trace their origins and evolution to a percussive dance tradition that developed in America several hundred years ago.
They traded steps, spitting out shards of rhythmic phrases and daring each other to pick up and one-up.
Use of the term Pickering is most commonly found in Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
