Beginning dancers may find that many dances can be followed by watching the leaders. It is not necessary to attend with a partner. For more information, see What is folk dancing.

Please help protect the hall's wooden floor by changing from street shoes 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!
