Welcome to Fiddle ‘n’ Feet

Appalachian Dance Team
Shipley, West Yorkshire

Fiddle ‘n’ Feet, a mixed Appalachian dance team, was formed over 15 years ago.  We currently practice in Shipley, West Yorkshire.

Our dancing is lively and energetic and our performances are often praised at festivals and events.  We choreograph our own dances and perform with musicians who play old-time and bluegrass fiddle tunes.

 Fiddle ‘n’ Feet have gained a reputation for delivering the true energy of the traditional Appalachian dance by bringing dancing and music direct from the Appalachian mountains of America.

Appalachian dance is sometimes referred to as American Old Time music and dance because of the energy of the performance and the foot tapping style of music.
