The Glen Echo Folk Dancers have been dancing since 1983; first at St. Mary’s Episcopal Church in Foggy Bottom; then the Church of the Redeemer in Bannockburn, MD; and, since¬† January 2020, Glen Echo Park. In all these years we have maintained a very welcoming atmosphere, lots of great music and dancing, occasional parties (sometimes with live music), and, most importantly, great people to share an evening with. Plan to have a wonderful time, learn some dances, listen to some wild music, and meet some new friends. No partner or skill is necessary. Dress comfortably. Smile. If you would like to be added to our email list and receive notices of upcoming events, please email Jamie.¬†

The Glen Echo International Folk Dancers are produced by Dancing Planet Productions  and co-sponsored by the Folklore Society of Greater Washington and the World Music and Dance Institute.

Admission $10
