Janet Higgs lives and dances in Indianapolis and winters in Delray Beach, Florida. Janet began her love affair with dancing as a young child when her father would dance around the room with her feet on top of his. Her grandfather played the hardanger fiddle and was reputed to be the best dancer in Miner County, South Dakota. She has dabbled in many forms of dance. She studied ballet and toured with the Indianapolis Ballet Theater (as a furry mouse). Janet discovered folk dance when a ballet friend dragged her to a folk dance workshop. After a very long hiatus raising children and husband, she returned to dance 6 years ago and her love for folk dance has only increased with time.
