Haddenham Hoofers have just celebrated their 25th anniversary — congratulations to them on this notable landmark!
Most local residents will be very familiar with this dance group, but if not: Haddenham Hoofers perform group dances based on traditional Appalachian dance steps, to the accompaniment of Old Time String Band Music.
These dance steps originate from the mountainous Appalachian region of North America where the communities developed energetic dance steps based on a mixture of British culture dating back to colonization, Native American and possibly African dance movements.
With these traditional steps, Hoofers choreograph their own dances using the metal shod shoes as percussive accompaniment to the live string band. Their dances are performed at festivals and fetes throughout the Summer months.
To encourage new members, the Hoofers are running a free workshop on Thursday 28th January, from 7.00 until 8.00pm for those potentially interested in joining.
You are warmly invited to come along by yourself or with friends. Participating parents are also welcome to bring their (Yr5+) children.
Said Fiona Quinn: "Hoofing is fantastic fun! ... but does require commitment to our practice evening, which is on Thursdays, in term time, at St Mary's Centre, Haddenham"
