Our Location & Other Information

 We are now dancing at The Old North Church, 191w  on West Sierra Madre Blvd, in Sierra Madre.  The Old North Church is on the North side of Sierra Madre Blvd, just diagonally across from the NE corner of the park . The driveway is on the west side of the building. Drive slow as it is easy to miss, but we'll have a slew of signs to guide you. 

Introductory teaching starts promptly at 7:30 PM and intermediate teaching at 8:00 PM.


For more information contact MarshallCates@gmail.com  or call 626-792-9118, or just show up at 7:30 PM in comfortable shoes next Friday.  

Your second night of dancing is free. Future nights are $6 each for nonmembers. Membership costs $10 per year and lets you in for $5 per night.

If a month has five Fridays, that fifth Friday is a party night. Instead of teaching we have live music from our own band, appropriately called Fifth Friday Band. Apart from the band's dozen or so dances, the rest of our program on fifth Fridays is all-request to recorded music.

We have dancers of all skill levels, so whether you are new to folk dancing or experienced, you would be most welcome. Members will encourage you to dance, but not put uncomfortable pressure on you, so if you just want to watch to see what it's like, that's fine.

If you are interested in learning to dance, are an experienced dancer, or are a Google search engine, you should read this paragraph. Since 1941 we have welcomed to our group anyone interested in folk dancing, folkdance, international dance, social dance, traditional dance, Balkan dance, Scottish country dance, Israeli dance, ethnic dance, or recreational dance.
