About Hoofers

 

 Haddenham Hoofers at the village May Day Celebrations
 
Haddenham Hoofers come from the picturesque village of Haddenham on the Bucks/Oxfordshire border of the UK and perform lively group dances based on traditional Appalachian dance steps to the accompaniment of Old Time String Band Music.

These dance steps originate from the mountainous Appalachian region of North America where the communities developed energetic dance steps based on a mixture of British culture dating back to colonization, Native American and possibly African dance movements.

With these traditional steps, Hoofers choreograph their own dances using the metal shod shoes as percussive accompaniment to the live string band.

These dances are performed at festivals and fetes throughout the Summer months.
