About Jesco White
White’s father was recognized as one of the most accomplished mountain dancers in the United States and was included in the 1987 documentary Talking Feet: Solo Southern Dance: Buck, Flatfoot and Tap produced by the Smithsonian Folkways. Jesco’s dance technique is an understated fusion of tap dancing and clog dancing that is traditional in Appalachia.
He learned this style from his father, who learned it from his father. Following the passing of his father, Jesco was able to acquire D. Ray’s tapping shoes, which he now utilizes during his performances. At least three documentaries have highlighted Jesco White’s dance in their respective narratives.
White’s trip to Los Angeles to appear in the episode “I Pray the Lord My Stove to Keep” of the sitcom Roseanne as the Elvis impersonator “Dan’s Clog-Dancing Cousin” is chronicled in Dancing Outlaw II (1999), which was also directed by Jacob Young. White played the role of “Dan’s Clog-Dancing Cousin.”
According to Mamie White, the eldest of D. Ray and Bertie Mae’s children, the White Family is followed for a whole year in the documentary entitled “The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia,” which was directed by Julien Nitzberg and released in 2009. It is mostly made up of first-person interviews that highlight the effects of the coal mining industry on Appalachian civilization, including how it has contributed to poverty, crime, and addiction.
White was one of the subjects of the documentary titled “The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia,” which was released in April of 2009 and was produced by Storm Taylor, Johnny Knoxville, and Jeff Tremaine of MTV. The first public screening of the movie took place at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York. White has asserted that his appearance in the documentary was an act and that the portrayal of the White family in the film is not accurate.
Bandytown, West Virginia, is a little settlement nestled in the Appalachian Mountains, and it is there that Jesco White was born to his parents, Donald Ray White (1927–1985) and Bertie Mae White. Donald Ray White was also known as D. Ray White. Bertie Mae White passed away in 1985. He is best known for being the subject of three American documentaries that detail his desire to follow in the famous footsteps of his father while also coping with depression, drug addiction, alcoholism, and the poverty that is prevalent in some areas of rural Appalachia. He gained widespread recognition as a result of these films.
