We usually meet every week on the Indiana University campus for free folkdance instruction and request dancing. We dance every Friday starting 6:30 p.m. in either the International and Global Studies Building near the Wells Library, or at the Indiana Memorial Union but location and start time can vary so check the current dance schedule! To get a weekly folkdance email, subscribe to the folkdance-l [at] indiana.edu mailing list. See instructions for signing up. This list is open to everyone, whether or not you are affiliated with IU. If you have difficulties, email Liz Venstra, erytting [at] indiana.edu.

Dances are taught the first hour and request dancing with some instruction the second hour. No experience needed, and no partner is needed. All are welcome and there is no charge!

We dance to recorded music especially from Europe and the Middle East, with some dances from the Americas, Asia and Africa. We usually teach a mix of easy, intermediate and difficult dances. We sometimes include a Balkan singing session.

Folkdancing is fun! If you like world music and like to dance, try folkdancing! You will learn basic steps of line and couple dancing used in many other types of dance. Newcomers of any age are welcome! Dress is casual.

PERFORMANCE GROUP: The IU International Folkdancers performance group performs for IU and for the community at large; performance photos are also available on FaceBook. Please contact Leah Savion, lsavion [at] indiana.edu for more information.
