International folk dancing involves learning traditional dances from cultures from around the world. The dances range from peaceful and relaxing to energetic and aerobic.

The fee is $4 for MIFDA members, $5 for non-members.

Dress comfortably for mild exercise.

Please bring a change of shoes — comfortable, smooth-soled and floor-friendly (i.e. no outdoor shoes please).

We begin with some easy warm-up dances, followed by about an hour of teaching.

After a short break, we have request dancing where members can ask for their favourite dances.

We close out the evening at 11:00 by dimming the lights and winding down with a calm last dance.

Most of our repertoire is line and circle dances from Balkan and Middle East countries, but we also do partner dances and mixers from Europe and North America.


We are an informal group of fun-loving international folk dance enthusiasts. There are easy dances we learn as well as more challenging dances, slow and fast dances, but our group is open to everyone and no experience or partner is required. We encourage you to participate and experience the joy of folk dance for yourself!
