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.

We are young and old, single and married, whole families,“snowbirds” and fulltime Coloradoans, but we ALL love to dance! Foot and Fiddle was founded in Loveland 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 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! Many years we take first place in the non-profit division.
Another way we support our 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 Larimer County Santa Cops Program to dispense to children experiencing hardships during the Christmas season.
We are also part of the Northeast Colorado Square Dance Council which serves dance clubs in the northeast area of Colorado as well as southern Wyoming and most recently the panhandle of Nebraska. With our dancing community we share in helping new clubs get started and old clubs carry-on.
Our annual fall 2016 lessons will begin on September 12, with a free chili dinner at the Windsor Community Center at 6:00pm. We will feed you and introduce you to our fabulous activity. Once you have learned the calls you will be welcomed in to a square at any square dance club throughout the world. All countries call the dances in english. Please join us!
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.
