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.
NewsThis quarter our special events include a party with Da! Mozem on October 7, our traditional Halloween party with live Bulgarian music performed by Bulgarika on October 28, and a dance party with Bill Cope and Friends on December 2.
Our featured instructor nights include Yale Rosenblatt October 14 and 21, Kaela Fine November 4 and 11, and Melissa Miller and Lew Smith December 9 and 16.

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.
