SPECIAL: Bulgarian Dance Party with music by Bulgarika

Saturday, September 28, 2019:
Our September monthly party features an all-request program of international dancing with the beautiful music of Shining Moon (Dean Brown, Colin Ferguson, Heather Lee, Dana Sussman, David Traugot, Brian Wilson, and Patrick Yacono), with programming by David Skidmore.

Regular monthly party fees:

  • Admission $12
  • FAC members $10
  • Students aged 8 and up $7
  • Under age 8 free

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!
