Pat’s Foot & Fiddle Dance Company celebrates and shares the friendship, joy and community building of traditional American dance and music with folks of all ages. From a family square dance, to in-school dance workshops and residencies, to an assembly performance of “American Footsteps”, Foot & Fiddle demonstrates why Square Dancing has been popular since Colonial times….because it is FUN! Square Dancing is America’s National Folk Dance! Traditional American fiddle music can inspire anyone to kick up their heels and have fun through the simple joy of holding hands and dancing together. Square Dancing helps builds the school community and can help to prevent bullying. Foot & Fiddle has been spreading the joy of traditional dance in the school in the tri-state area for the past 31 years with 29 of those years having been at YANY.
