THE CREW OF IFDA:

IFDA Board:  Board Members are the fiduciaries who steer the organization towards a sustainable future by adopting sound, ethical, and legal governance and sound financial management policies, as well as by making sure the nonprofit has adequate resources to advance its mission.

IFDA Programming and Teaching Committee:  Folk dancing is a form of dance which originates as a cultural expression from people around the world at the level of the village.  Programming and Teaching Members, each week, select a list of dances from various countries that provides continuity and consistency from week to week to IFDA members.  Each week new dances may be taught from workshops or older dances may be reviewed/re-taught.

IFDA Members: Folk Dancers who come to Saturday Night Folk Dancing.  Without our IFDA members, folk dance would not exist.  They dance the dances, help out with events, potlucks and parties.  They bring snacks and coffee.  They help and guide new folk dancers.  They are friendly and are always there to lend a helping hand.  

ABOUT THE CREW OF IFDA:

 "Crew" is defined as "A group of people who work closely together."  And that's what we do.  We work together, dedicated to give you the finest and most enjoyable, friendly experiences in INTERNATIONAL FOLK DANCING for each Saturday - including workshops, live dance music, potlucks, parties throughout the year.  Our experienced programmers and teachers are the finest in the country who bring us these wonderful dances with their expertise and teaching.  Our IFDA members are close-nit.  We dance hand-in-hand, shoulder-to-shoulder, arm-in-arm and heart-to-heart, friends forever, always together.
