Evie Ladin began creating original and traditional percussive dances at the age of eight, performing with her sister Abby at music festivals and in theatres across the United States. The two continue to choreograph and perform with their ensemble Tongue & Groove, which features an old-time stringband, harmony singing, flashy footwork and puppets.

Evie also began playing banjo at this early age, learning from some of the finest players on the East Coast. She began formally studying dance and choreography at Brown University (BA'91: African Studies in Dance). Continuing study in New York, Nigeria and Chicago, Evie spent more than a year in West Africa on a Fulbright Fellowship to study dance and culture. From 1991-99 she toured nationally with Rhythm In Shoes of Dayton, OH, performing concerts and teaching workshops in tap dance, clogging, body percussion, and other traditional step dances.

New to the Bay Area, Evie often performs with Keith Terry & Crosspulse, the Berkeley based multicultural vocal and percussion ensemble, and with her tap dance ensemble, Motor and her clogging group, Roots Revue. Evie choreographs for choir and theater, and teaches all levels of rhythm tap, body percussion, banjo and clogging.
