FFD at a Glance

Come dance with us! The Framingham Folk Dancers is an informal, noncommercial group of people who like to have fun dancing -- and we do! Instruction and requests at all levels. Beginners are very welcome (your first night is free!). No partner needed.

Our dances come from many cultural traditions, including (but certainly not limited to!) those of: Armenia, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Croatia, Denmark, England, France, Germany, Greece, Gypsy, Hungary, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Macedonia, Mexico, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Scotland, Serbia, Spain, Sweden, Tibet, Turkey, Ukraine, and the USA. Our teachers and members attend workshops throughout the region and beyond, notably the Pinewoods week and Oktoberfest weekend sponsored by the Folk Arts Center of New England.

Here is the FIFD group that met for our regular Wednesday dance on September 30, 2009:

Of course, we don't normally sit around like that! See a somewhat livelier series of photos, taken that same evening, here. Our thanks to professional photographer Alan J. Kidawski for these photos.

Here are some more recent collections of photos and videos, taken by our members:
