Shoostring Appalachian Dancing
Shoostring is a dynamic and energetic dance group who display a synchronised and unique approach to Appalachian dancing. The side choreograph their own dances, bringing to life the toe-tapping rhythms of American Bluegrass music performed by the Shoostring Band. Appalachian dancing is a form of folk dance developed in the Appalachian mountains of North America, where it is still popular today (the term Appalachian derives from Appalachee, a reference to the indigenous Appalachee native Americans).
Shoostring have performed at many events and folk festivals, including, of course, Tredegar House, plus Wadebridge, Chippenham and Pontardawe. They have also toured County Cork in Southern Ireland.
