Welcome to the Oklahoma International Folk Dancers Site. The Oklahoma International Folk Dancers is a non-profit group for the enjoyment and preservation of recreational folk-dancing. International folk dancing includes the traditional social dances of many countries and cultures, danced to their authentic music. The dances are danced in a variety of formations, e.g. short lines, circles and couples. Many dances are easy to learn; you don't need to come with a partner. Its fun for people of all ages and nationalities.
We delight in sharing our dance and music with others. Dances are usually taught by local teachers, while guest instructors teach at workshops organized from time to time throughout the year. Beginners are welcome, no previous dance experience necessary. Except for costume parties, dress is casual. Wear comfortable, SOFT-SOLED shoes.
The OKCIFD group meets every Monday evening at the Unitarian Church at NW 13th Street and Dewey.
We encourage newcomers to come at the beginning of the evening to take advantage of the teaching sessions. Classes for beginners start at 7:00 p.m., followed by classes for intermediate/advanced dancers at 8:30 p.m. From 9:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. there is request dancing. Request dancing is usually done without instruction.
We believe that international folk-dancing promotes friendship, encourages us to learn more about other cultures, and provides good exercise to great music! We invite you to come and join the fun.
The yearly membership dues are $6.00 per individual and $10.00 per family. This will allow you to vote at the meetings and support our group.
Keep Costs Low
Dancing with us is very inexpensive!
The first night is free and cost is only $3.00 per night after that.
This pays for the use of the wonderful space we dance in!
