Kerry Fletcher is a choreographer and traditional dancer  of many styles, from waltzing to clogging. She is an experienced dance workshop leader and an accomplished performer.

She is Co Artistic Director of Folk Dance Remixed and a freelance community folk dance artist

She works part-time as the co-ordinator of the Folk Educators Group, a national networking group of folk arts educators from across England and beyond, facilitated by the English Folk Dance and Song Society (EFDSS). Established in March 2011 the Group has become a rapidly growing network committed to promoting high quality folk arts education and supporting the practitioners who deliver it.

It exists to provide peer information and support, and to encourage dialogue with the wider worlds of culture, learning and participation. The Folk Educators Group also offers other organisations a platform through which to consult, or inform, a committed group of folk arts educators.

Kerry’s performance history includes: co-choreographing and performing with JigJaw – a band singing to dancing & dancing to singing, with Janet Russell, Rosie Davis & Frances Watt, Broken Ankles – acclaimed Appalachian cloggers, The Stepback Project and The 4K Plot. She also co-choreographed & performed with The Chase, Circa Compania – Karen Tweed’s music & dance ensemble, Daughters of Elvin – Katy Marchant’s medieval music & masked dance theatre,  and Shaking the Tradition at Chisenhale Dance Space, London.

Her education work focusses on foot percussion and English & American dance often within inter-cultural work. She has been developing and delivering workshops in schools, at festivals & community events, and in immigration removal centres with refugees and asylum seekers. She is a visiting lecturer on the folk music degree course at Newcastle University and for several years she has been a tutor on the Folkworks and Halsway Manor summer schools.

As well as running her own community dance workshops, she teaches at festivals & dance clubs all over the country, she has worked with Tapatak and TAPs (Traditional Arts Projects).
