If a group's name is underlined, it maintains a web site you can immediately visit by clicking on the group's name. A stop at the web site (assuming the group regularly updates it) should give you the latest news about the group's dances, special events and other activities. Although we checked out each web site when we listed it, we're not responsible for those which contain errors or no longer exist.
We realize it's not possible to keep abreast of all folk dance happenings in the region. So, if you're aware of folk dance groups not listed, please tell them about us and visit our Suggesting a Group page to tell us about them. Also, if you run a folk dance group not listed or listed incorrectly, please visit our Listing a Group page to submit a new listing or correct the current one. Finally, if you know of a web site presenting information about folk dancing in all or part of the region not listed below or listed incorrectly, please visit our Suggesting a Link page to let us know about it.
We've tried to make all listings as easy and intuitive to use as possible. However, if you're unsure how we've arranged the listings on this page, how we've organized the information in each listing, what's supposed to be included and not included in each listing, how to find groups doing a specific type of folk dance or anything else, please visit our Using the Listings page for help.
If you intend to attend a group for the first time or after several weeks of nonattendance, DON'T go without first contacting the group to verify there'll actually be a dance. To reduce the possibility of disappointment, ALWAYS check and confirm the dance's start time, location, admission fee, travel directions and any other important details. And while you're at it, please mention you saw the group's listing here at the Folk Dance Association web site.
