Tri-City Folk Dancers

Due to concerns about the health and safety of our dance community, the Tri-City Folk Dancers are suspending the weekly Friday sessions.  We will announce when the sessions will resume.  Thank you.

Fridays, 7:30-10:00

Schenectady YWCA, 44 Washington Ave.

International Folk Dancing includes the traditional dances of many countries and cultures done to authentic music in a variety of formations (lines, partners, circles). Our group is particularly fond of dances from the Balkan countries (Bulgaria, Macedonia, former Yugoslav countries, Romania, Greece and Turkey. We also enjoy dances from Armenia, Israel and many other countries. We mostly dance to recorded music, but have live music events several times a year.

Men and women of all ages do the dances, and no partner is necessary, as most dances do not involve couples. We welcome beginners and children who are interested in dancing. We encourage them to come early in the evening when instruction is emphasized. Typically, the level of difficulty increases as the evening progresses and we move on to dances requested by the group. Comfortable clothing and soft-soled shoes are recommended.

The Tri-City group meets weekly on Fridays at 7:30 pm in the Schenectady YWCA’s Kathan Room.
