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.


July to September 2017 Newsletter

As of August 11 we will not be meeting Fridays regularly at First Baptist in Palo Alto. The city of Palo Alto will now be enforcing zoning regulations and the church is prohibited from hosting non-religious events or organizations at the church. Read more about the dilemma with First Baptist and the city of Palo Alto here.

Please check our event listings weekly for our time and location as details may change until we find a new home for our weekly meetings.

Our remaining special event this quarter is an international dance party with live music by Mosaic on September 8.

Our featured instructor nights include Kevin Greek and Amy Baldwin August 11 and 18, and Katherine Abbott September 15 and 22.

No hard-soled street shoes, please. Come to dance with soft-soled shoes or dance shoes that you wear only indoors. For the comfort and safety of our members, we reserve the right to refuse admission to anyone.
