|Enjoy a fun night of folk dancing DJ’d by Franklin Houston. Franklin will be assisted by Dee McCandless.
|Teaching: Madeline Brock will start the evening at 7:30 with class #14 of our spring 2015 newcomers’ semester. The semester presents dance fundamentals and etiquette, introduced through some of our favorite folk dances. It is a great way for newcomers to learn what is so fun about dancing in general and folk dancing in particular.

Hancock Recreation Center (HRC)
On November 6, the City of Austin Parks and Recreation Department (PARD) notified AIFD of its intent to sharply raise the rental rate for Hancock Recreation Center (HRC). The AIFD board immediately met in person with PARD representatives to discuss the changes and their implications to AIFD. Look for additional communication from the board this week at dancing. Please come. We need AIFD member input and feedback to explore solutions.
The Austin International Folk Dancers meet almost every Saturday Night (7-11PM) at the Hancock Recreation Center, 811 E 41st St, in Austin Texas.
Everyone is welcome at AIFD
, we are kid-friendly and our dancers come from all walks of life. We ask for a $5 donation to cover room rental from those 17 and up (where else can you have three hours of fun for that low a price these days?).
No partner is needed, and dancers of every skill level are welcome.
Our repertoire includes line dances, couples dances, and mixers. Folk dancing is a great social event and wonderful exercise.
We are often having intermediate teaching sessions and other special events! Please check our Teaching/Programming page or the Calendar for more information on upcoming events.
