Foot and Fiddle Square Dance Club was established in 1960 in Loveland, Colorado. We have continuously offered a quality square and round dance program to dancers in Northern Colorado for 52 years. Whether you are already one of our dancing friends or thinking about becoming one, we hope you will find our website informative and helpful.
My apologies to you all for the length & detail of this questionnaire. It is necessary in order to provide me with the best information possible to provide the right caller with the right program with the right time. I truly appreciate your patience and understanding. Happy calling, Jeff Palmer
Here are over 100 of Senda's snapshots of the New Year's Eve Dance. She welcomes you to copy and/or share any of these photos, in fact DO! ...
Here we are, a diverse and happy bunch!
We are young and old, single and married, “snowbirds” and fulltime Coloradoans, but we ALL love to dance! Foot and Fiddle was founded in 1960 and have not stopped dancing since!
We dance for the fellowship. No matter where you go you can always find friends on the square dance floor. When you are new they make you welcome; when you are down their enthusiasm lifts you up. We dance for the health benefits. It’s good for your bones, good for your heart, good for your mind! Did you know that square dancing can add 10 years to your life! But most importantly, we dance because we just can’t resist. It’s FUN — from the warm hugs to the dessert table to the laughter on the floor.
As members of the Loveland community, we like to support local events. Each year we participate in the Larimer County Fair and Parade. We danced our way down main street. It was hot but not hotter than us! This year we took first place in the non-profit division.
Another way we support our Loveland community is with our annual “Toys for Tots” dance. Each December we host a dance and ask each dancer to bring a toy to donate. These toys are given to the Loveland Police Department to dispense to children experiencing hardships during the Christmas season.
We are also part of the Northeast Colorado Council of Square Dance clubs. With our dancing community we share helping new clubs get started and old clubs carry-on.
This year as part of the council, we helped provide a booth at the Larimer County Fair to promote square dancing and lessons. One hundred and seven people signed up to find out more about square dancing! And THANKS to all the club callers, 82 of us facilitated audience participation dancing during the fair.
NEW TO SQUARE DANCING? Square Dancing is dancing in a square with a partner and 3 other couples. A Caller "calls" out the dance and you follow the directions. Anyone can do it! Square Dancing requires lessons to participate in dances. See our LESSONS schedule to get started.
