Footworks Percussive Dance Ensemble 
Presented by Maryland Hall

Celebrating 40 years as a performing arts company, Footworks Percussive Dance Ensemble presents a very special 40th Anniversary Concert with special guests Tim O’Brien, Charm City Junction, and Baakari Wilder, along with many other stellar performers who have been a part of Footworks’ legacy. Join us for a very special celebration with many of the very best in acoustic music and percussive dance.

Footworks has been coming to Maryland Hall almost since its very beginning. The company began rehearsing here in 1980 and shortly thereafter began presenting bi-annual concerts in the hall. Footworks is honored to continue the tradition and to return to Maryland Hall for their 40th Anniversary concert.

Since 1979, Footworks Percussive Dance Ensemble has delighted audiences of all ages and cultures around the world. Footworks thrilled audiences as guest artists in the London run of Riverdance and was honored to be one of eight groups chosen to represent American culture in Japan on a tour with the Smithsonian Institution. Footworks, recognized as pioneers in bringing traditional Americana music and percussive dance to the concert stage, is also dedicated to teaching and working with youth and is recognized for over 39 years in Arts-In-Education. 

Footworks remains true to traditional American music and percussive dance and presents connected roots and branches from many cultures. All of Footworks programming is a celebration of the cultural diversity found in the United States. The Washington Post declares, "The eruptive joy of Footworks dancers is as contagious as laughter!"
