Footworks Percussive Dance Show

Our friends, Ron and Patsy told us that the local Art Council had a series of events happening over the winter. The first one was by the Footworks Percussive Dance Ensemble. If you click on the link, there is a great explanation of what Footworks is, how long they have been around and what Percussive Dance is. So we bought tickets and went to the show about 2 weeks ago. The show was very entertaining and we marveled at the footwork(pun intended) the members were able to perform. This type of dance, to me, resembled a cross between clogging and Celtic dance. We had a lot of fun and we had pretty good seats to get an up close view of the dance steps.

This is a show we would definitely go to again in the future. A group that has been performing since 1979 has staying power and must be doing something right. I think it's their enthusiasm and their love of what they do that makes this show work so well. If you has a chance to go to one of their shows, don't pass it up.
