Have you always wanted to dance, but do not have a partner or a dance background? If so, international dancing might be for you. Our dance group includes people of all fitness levels. Most of us are just regular people who enjoy dancing. Most of us are over 40. The dancing isn't that strenuous, but some of the music is so beautiful it might take your breath away.

International dancing is great exercise and a wonderful way to make friends. This Meetup group will help you get started with lessons and with several opportunities to enjoy dancing. Sometimes called international folk dance, there isn't much folksy about it. International dance includes both traditional and modern dances from many countries and cultures. This is a form of social dance, done mostly with people holding hands in lines or in circles. Some dances are done as couples, but the majority of the dances are non-partner. This hasn't kept people from finding that special person through international dance.

There are international folk dance groups all over the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia and they often dance many of the same dances. Once you learn the basics of international dancing, it's a skill you can take with you and enjoy wherever you go!

Some international folk dances are easy, but you will need to attend some introductory classes to get started. We have a class on Thursday nights in La Canada, where you can learn the basics from an excellent teacher. The group is very friendly and welcomes people new to folk dancing as well as those with folk dance experience. Come join us! Our website is https://Foothill.dance .
