Soft Option Appalachian Step Dancers
 Soft Option AppalachianStep Dancers

Soft Option Step Dancers are based in Worcestershire and have been dancing in the Appalachian style since 1990

Appalachian dancing is a percussive form of dance that originates from Northern America, where the dancer's feet provide the rhythm for the band. The music is mainly bluegrass/old time and we are extremely fortunate to have a talented band who play violin, mandolin, guitar, banjo, and double bass who go by the name of 'No Option'.....

All of the dances have been choreographed by the girls using either traditional steps that have been handed down over generations or variations of the old style steps. These steps have now been filmed and uploaded to YouTube where Soft Option have their own channel (click here to take a look). Why not have a go and then come and show us your moves - it's totally infectious and great fun!


If you attended the workshop on Sunday 10th September 2017 at Bromyard Folk Festival - download the step sheet via the link at the bottom of this page.

During the winter months, Soft Option practice once a week most Tuesday nights at The Talbot, Knightwick, but come springtime, they perform most Thursday nights (weather permitting) at local hostelries.... This is where you will see them at their most relaxed, but you'll also see them at folk festivals, fetes and fund raisers - take a look at the "Diary" tab for more detail, times and dates.

We also maintain a page on Facebook, so if you would like to look at our photo albums and catch up with the gossip, simply click on this link - you don't need a Facebook profile just to look...
