Kick Start Appalachian Dancers are becoming ever more popular at both Festivals and Public Functions and the side features over a dozen skillful and enthusiastic dancers. One of our trademarks is the accurate rhythm we try to maintain in their dances, adding a precise percussive beat to the music. Our live performances include a number of challenging, original dances and a couple of speciality rhythmic numbers using broom handles and body-slapping (or Ham-boning, as it’s sometimes called in the USA).
Visual, skillful and humorous, the shows are a delight for audiences of all ages and tastes and we even throw in audience participation for even more entertainment!
