Dancing is a recognised way to keep fit, and International Folk Dancing combines the benefit of exercise with the pleasure of dancing to beautiful music.
There are many groups and classes all over Britain - almost all can be joined by people of any age with no previous experience, and singles are as welcome as couples. New dancers do not need to be members of the Society, although membership naturally has its benefits.
There are also benefits for groups and classes who affiliate to the Society. See our Membership pages for details.
There is a list of Society teachers who can be asked to visit and teach at your group or function.
On the right of this page we list important future events, as well as any taking place in the next 14 days, if there are any (some periods are quieter than others). Full details of all known events are listed on the What's On? pages. There are separate pages for those in the UK and elsewhere.
We are a UK-based, voluntary, non-profit- making, non-political association that aims to encourage people to learn and enjoy Folk Dances from many countries.
Details of the aims of the Society can be found on our About Us page, and our constitution is also available.
