Want A Great Calgary Dance Experience?

Are you looking for a Calgary dance experience that is fun and inexpensive?

Recreational folk dancing is great exercise, relaxing, educational and fun. It is one of those rare activities that can be enjoyed by people of all ages. Over the past 25 years, Calgary Folkdance Fridays has been teaching traditional dances from around the world (and a few that aren’t).

Our traditional current selection consists of over 250 different dances taught by instructors who donate their time, expertise and enthusiasm for folk dancing.

Anyone can learn to folk dance. No special training is required; just wear comfortable non-floor marking shoes. You don’t even need to bring a partner. Come out for a night of dancing and meet a new group of friends.
