No Mean Feet - Appalachian Dance
No Mean Feet
and the Shoestring Band

No Mean Feet perform a lively and exciting form of American folk dance which involves intricate routines and percussive steps. Dancers wear shoes with metal taps which accentuate the rhythm and all are dances are choreographed by team members. Apart from team dances, the style also lends itself to freestyling, where an individual dancer improvises steps, prompted by the accompanying music.

We have been together as a team for a number of years and have danced at most of the folk festivals in the South West, including Priddy, Sidmouth, Swanage and Dartmoor as well as local events such as South Petherton Green Fayre and Dillington House open day.

Shoestring Band

We are accompanied by the Shoestring Band who play traditional, lively American folk tunes on various instruments including banjo, guitar and fiddle.
