About American Folk Dance Ensemble

Taking the folk history of the United States around the world, American Folk Dance Ensemble creates a colorful tapestry of the rich cultural history of the USA. Each performance is a cultural expression, strongly associated with a specific group or people as a reflection of American custom and belief. Their fast-paced, superbly staged program includes Appalachian flat-footing, Southern waltzes, traditional clogging , square dancing, the western swing, and other performances.

The dancers and the musicians were absolutely magnificent... The overwhelming feeling here is that it’s extremely unfortunate that there could only be one performance!
