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.
As of August 11, 2017 we are not meeting at First Baptist in Palo Alto. Except for occasional evenings when we meet at All Saints Episcopal Church in Palo Alto, we will be meeting at Bethany Lutheran Church in Menlo Park.
Please check our event listings weekly for our time and location as meeting details may change

We will not meet November 29.
