RECONNECTING OUR COMMUNITY THROUGH A SHARED LOVE OF THE ARTS

Marquette Folk Dancers

Marquette Folk Dancers

The group was founded in 1968 by men who learned folk dancing elsewhere.

This is a recreational group that meets (nearly) every Friday night of the year, 7:00 pm, at the Women’s Center Gym (Northern Lights Martial Arts Center), . Our group has a good men/women balance, so our repertoire favors partner dances. Our repertoire is primarily from all over Europe, highlighting Scandinavia, Great Britain, Central & Eastern Europe, and the Balkan countries. We have dances from Israel and a few from North America. Partner dances include set dances from all regions of Europe except the Balkans.

On a typical Friday night we do about 2/3 partner dances and 1/3 non-partner dances. Every Friday has a spectrum from slow to strenuous.

Dress comfortably for exercise. Bring soft-soled shoes.

We do some teaching on most Fridays. To pay rent, we charge $5/person/night or $200/year.

Although the group is primarily recreational, we have performed at ethnic festivals and art fairs.
