Folk Dancing

The Society has a wonderful Folk Dancing troupe that performs at many of the club events and share their skills with dancers of other countries.

Come along and enjoy the energy of the night and learn dancing of centuries past with full costume.

Once a year we host the "Winter Warmup" folk dance exhibition, attended by many national dancers from around the region.

The Folk Dancing group started in the mid-1950s, when a dozen or so young people met at the home of Borge and Ruth Kirk.  The interest has more or less continued to the present day, thanks to different families who took leadership over the years.
