We are now dancing at the Altadena Community Church, 943 Altadena Drive, Altadena, just east of Lake.
We start at 7:30 with a few warm-up dances and then begin introductory teaching at 7:45 PM. Intermediate teaching starts at 8:15 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.
Admission is $6, but you’ll receive a voucher to come to a second night of dancing for free. Membership costs $10 per year and lets you in for $5 per night.
If a month has five Fridays, the 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.
