Connect Globally, Dance Locally. Follow folk dance leaders and dance watching enthusiasts worldwide.

Dance wherever you are; no need to get together to dance, we’ll dance in our own homes, apartments, vans, yurts, cabins… With luck, you’ll be able to show yourself with your webcam and we’ll see and hear each other! Hey, wear a costume!

We will:

  • Connect and dance in our own homes
  • Watch people leading dances from around the world
  • Submit requests and chat online
  • See each other; listen and dance to our favorites

At this party, in addition to our regular dance leaders, we’re excited to have join us as live Dance Leaders:

  • Roberto Bagnoli – Part of our core team, Roberto will once again dance with us from his home in Rome. Roberto hosts many workshops online, more info can be found on his website.
  • Megan Wolf and Jordan Uggla – From Northern California, Megan and Jordan teach and dance a wide repertoire. Regulars at Stockton Folk Dance Camp and other venues, both are energetic and passionate about many great things.
  • Marcie Van Cleave – Based in Massachusetts, Marcie is the Director of the Folk Arts Center of New England (Facone) who has been hosting an excellent series of dance workshops from many master teachers. If you haven’t had the chance to attend, make it a priority before our party on Saturday.
