"Liking" us on Facebook will help publicize the group to your friends.
We are a recreational and social dance group. Please join us to learn and do folk dances from around the world, enjoy the beautiful melodies and fascinating rhythms of many cultures, and just have fun.
You don't need to bring a partner. Most of the dances are done as a group, and for those where you do need a partner, you can ask anyone. Come alone, with a partner, or bring all your friends!
This video was taken in November, 2009 at the Near Northwest Neighborhood Arts Cafe. We are a recreational group, not a performance troupe, but we do occasionally rustle up a handful of volunteers to demonstrate a few dances to the public, as you see being done here.
St. Paul's is a beautiful, mellow, and charming place to dance, with a nice wooden floor and beautiful architecture, trim, and fixtures to set a lovely mood. We are very pleased to have St. Paul's hosting our group. It may be noted however that we are a civic group, not a church group.
