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.
