Heather Patey & The STEP Fiddlers: Kids’ Newfoundland Traditional Set Dance

Traditional Newfoundland Set Dance for Kids!: This workshop is composed of a series of simple figures taken from traditional Newfoundland set dances, either in longways or square/circle form, that can be learned quickly and then strung together to make a whole dance performable by the group. Children don’t need previous experience or special footwear to dance with workshop leader Heather Patey, and it’s unimportant whether they’re boys or girls or who partners with whom. Live music, traditional Newfoundland dance tunes, will be provided by members of the STEP Fiddlers, a group of accomplished young musicians
