COVID-19 Protocol: Proof of full vaccination and a signed updated COVID-19 waiver are required on first visit.

 PLEASE NOTE:  The 12th Annual New Jersey Folk Dance Fest is currently on hiatus.   

We dance to soulful music from many ethnic groups and countries including Albania, Armenia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Hungary, Israel, Macedonia, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, and Turkey.

Most evenings begin with an hour of teaching. Most of our folk dances are line dances, so you don't need a partner. Wear comfortable clothing and flat, soft-soled shoes or sneakers.

Folk dancing includes many easy village dances, as well as complex dances that are energizing to do or to watch. Folk dancing provides relaxation, mild exercise, a friendly atmosphere, and air conditioning. So why don't you break away from the TV set and come have some fun?
