Lizsong (2 years ago) Gumboot dancing originated as a form of communication for the mine workers who were not allowed to speak while they were working.
uChakide (10 months ago) State your source, as that is crap! I won't deny that it was miners who started it, but the story put forward that it was a form of morse code used to defy the mine owners is pure marketing drivel.
