FAC’s monthly folk dance parties typically feature live music and all-request programming without teaching. Beginners may find that many dances can be followed by watching the leading dancers. It is not necessary to attend with a partner. For more information, see What is folk dancing.

We provide punch for the refreshment table; donations of snacks are welcome.

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!
