What is International Folk Dance?
International Folk Dance celebrates dances from all over the world. Folk dance means just that - dances that people have made up and danced for many years, sometimes for hundreds of years, making them traditional dances for their areas. The club has learned them through workshops with expert teachers and dance them each week enjoying their unique styles. Dance styles range from slow and relaxing to fast and energetic, from simple to expert levels. Primarily dances are done in a line or in a circle of dancers holding hands; however, many dances are couple dances, done either in a circle of couples or in sets.
