DescriptionOur association teaches folk dances from around the world in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Folk dance is a whole world of fascinating music and rhythms. There are the modern dances of Israel and the ancient dances of Greece. There are circle dances from Romania, line dances from the general Balkan area, quadrilles (square sets) from Western Europe, bush dances from Australia, and a few dances from Asia and the Americas. Why not have a go. You'll be pleasantly surprised. It's fun, you don't need a partner and it's a wonderful way to keep fit in a relaxed social group. We run weekly classes for adults from beginner to advanced levels and organise dance workshops with ethnic teachers. FDC employs qualified teachers. (Folk Dance Australia Teacher Training Course) adhere to the Dance Industry Code of Ethics and are the first dance organisation to achieve Active Australia recognition. Class Venue: Folk Dance Canberra Hall, 114 Maitland Street Hackett (former Hackett Primary School)

Additional InformationFolk Dance Canberra Incorporated (FDC) is a recreational folk dance group, which teaches dances from many countries around the world. Our classes are taught in a friendly, relaxed and inclusive atmosphere without the need for a partner. FDC strives to offer members variety, both in the dances learned and the options of varying class levels and times, with classes ranging from beginner to advanced levels. During ACT school terms, classes are held Monday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings, plus Tuesday and Friday mornings. Children's classes are after school hours on Friday afternoons. FDC has a very energetic Events Committee which organises social dances and specialty workshops by visiting teachers as well as themed Mid-Year and Christmas parties. FDC members have participated in displays at nursing homes, community expos and events, the Canberra Multicultural Festival and the National Folk Festival. All our teachers have been certified by Folk Dance Australia Incorporated and are encouraged to be First-Aid trained, in accordance with the Australian Guidelines for Dance Teachers.
