Folk 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. As well as regular classes, the first Saturday afternoon (from 1:30 to 4:00pm) of most months between February and December is devoted to Greek dance and culture. Occasionally another country's dance and culture is featured and for some months the event is held on another day. Be sure to check FDC's Events page for the latest information.
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.
