Stanford International Folk Dancers


Circle dance lead by vocalists of the Nema Problema Chorale

Since its origins as a student dance club on the Stanford University campus, the Stanford International Folk Dance group has been a place to enjoy and learn recreational dances of the world in a delightful social environment. We meet for dancing once weekly on Fridays except on some holiday weekends. Adults, teens, and families are welcome.

Stanford International Folk Dancers is a not-for-profit group staffed by volunteers. Your admission donation at the door pays entirely for operation costs as well as a small compensation for volunteer instructors. For live music nights or special workshops the admission price also reasonably compensates the talented band or instructor.
