Fiddle 'n' Feet is Jamie Gans on fiddle and Tamara Loewenthal on feet. We are committed to presenting the very best in percussive dance and traditional music from North America and the Celtic countries. We dance, we sing, we play fiddle, mandolin, banjo, guitar, jaw harps and more! Our songs and music range from Old Time Appalachian to Irish to French Canadian. In performance, we showcase a variety of step dance styles, from American clogging to English wooden shoe clogging to French Canadian reels and waltzes. We also teach percussive and traditional styles of dance, and we call and play music for square and contra dances. Rhythm is an important component of our work, whether drumming with feet or with our hands against our bodies. We engage our audiences and our students in the joy of movement and sound.

It's June in Bloomington, IN, and a beautiful time of year. We head into summer with a string of school performances, dances, clogging classes, and workshops. If you want to learn to clog, this is a great time to get started. If you want to learn some fiddle tunes, Jamie is your man. If you'd like to get us for a performance, talk to us. We're working with a great group of dancers, and several musicians who have a multitude of skills. And Tamara's love of calling dances keeps us traveling here and there. We hope to see you down the road!
Please contact us for more information, or just to say hi. We love to hear from you.
