Croatian Night with music by Pajdaši

Our guest band, Pajdaši (buddies, friends), is a fun-loving group of American and native-born Croatian singers and instrumentalists (featuring the tambura) who will lift our spirits with their renditions of traditional songs and dance music of Croatia. Most of the dances on the program will be taught or can be easily followed. Join us for a fun evening of dancing with great refreshments too!

Move to the music of the world!

Marcie Van Cleave and guest teachers provide a fun program for new and experienced dancers alike at FAC’s Friday folk dance. In a typical evening, several dances are taught or called, and most others can be followed by watching the leading dancers. It is not necessary to have previous dance experience or to attend with a partner. For more information about what happens at our Friday dances, see About folk dancing or call the FAC office at 781-438-4387.

Please help protect the hall’s wooden floor by changing to clean, soft-soled shoes before dancing. For the comfort and well-being of all our dancers, especially those with allergies or asthma, please do not wear perfume or fragranced personal products at our dances. Thank you!
