When I was about 4-5 years old, my father would put my feet on his and dance me around to the tune. He would sing the words and we would go to the left and to the right. After 65 yrs., when I heard the music recently while my husband was watching a western on TV, I immediately flashed back to the memory of my sister and I dancing with my father. Thanks for the memories, Daddy.

I just looked this up because it was on a Lawrence Welk rerun this evening. They did the dance, and it is very simple, but not simple enough for me to remember exactly and write here. I remember seeing it on a Wee Sing video called "The Wee Sing Train" in the 90s.

This tune was featured on piano and fiddle in a scene from a Disney movie called "The Apple Dumpling Gang". I can remember hearing the words years ago that included the lines "Put your little foot right here" and "Put your other foot right there".

Additionally... we would be very interested in obtaining a written copy of the dance foot steps to Little Foot..if anyone has them, or could write them down for us.

We are doing research about an obscure folk dance that comes from our remote village in Croatia. It is called "Stari Roso." Translated it means the "old red haired man." The music seems to be exactly the same as Little Foot. When the Little Foot music was played some of the elderly people got up and danced to it. They were convinced it was their "stari roso" and nothing other than that! We are trying to find out more about our heritage. Research has told us that the ancestor to Little Foot was a popular dance from Poland from the mid 1850's entitled Varsovienne. A man from our village lived in California in the late 1800's and his nickname was "stari roso." We would appreciate to know if anyone can help us with more information connecting all the pieces. We are trying to preserve our unique heritage and would like to reintroduce this dance to the next generation.

My mother used to sing this so us and show us the footwork. I have taught it to my great grandson (20) months old and he goes about the day singing "Put your little foot" What happy memories I had then and now to enjoy it all over again. Joy

The first dance my parents taught me when I was about 4 or 5 years old. Some 50 years later, I requested it at a dance (at a senior center). Both the country western band and the audience/dancers immediately formed the couples' side-by-side, over the shoulder hand hold and began to dance -- but only after my partner and I refreshed their memories by leading out the steps. Wonderful dance for any age!
