Framingham Folk Dancers
"Dances from Earth"

FFD at a Glance

Come dance with us! The Framingham (International) 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. Age is not a factor ‐ we regularly welcome dancers 5, 95, and all ages between and beyond!

Have questions about what International Folk Dancing is all about, and what it "looks like"? See the "About FAC" / "About Folk Dancing" page at the nearby Folk Arts Center of New England for an in-depth explanation, pictures and videos. Likewise the FAQ page of a sister organization in California has lots of useful information.

We celebrate the dance traditions of many cultures, including (but certainly not limited to!) those of: Armenia, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Croatia, Denmark, England, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Macedonia, Mexico, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Roma, 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.

We dance most Wednesday evenings September through June at the Edwards Church Hall in Framingham; see our Regular Schedule page for full details and directions for the Wednesday series (which includes occasional parties and workshops). See also our Special Events page for occasional events at other times and places. There's also an FFD Google Calendar incorporating both the regular and special schedule.
