About the Dances

Mostly request dancing and limited teaching. Prior international folk dance experience is helpful, but many dances can be followed by watching the leaders. Teaching may be done between 8:00 and 9:00 and may include reviews and talk-throughs of previously taught dances. Visit the Thursday archives page for examples of what has been reviewed in the past.

Covid Policy

  • Masks are optional but welcome and highly encouraged.
  • Please do not attend if you are feeling ill.

Footwear and Fragrance Suggestions

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!
