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.

We usually meet at Bethany Lutheran Church in Menlo Park. Be sure to check our calendar for any change in location for special events.


Please check our event listings weekly for our time and location as meeting details may change

San Mateo county health as well as Counties of Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco, Santa Clara, Sonoma, and the City of Berkeley as of Tuesday Aug. 3, 2021 have made a health order that everybody should wear a mask in indoor public places. Stanford International Dancers will not be meeting until this mask mandate is lifted.

Trends and guidance upon the pandemic can change weekly. We are monitoring county health guidelines and our policies will change as needed to conform with them.
