"Our purpose is to practice and teach international folk dancing as a social and fitness activity. All levels of dancing are provided: beginners, intermediate and advanced. Many of the dances we teach do not require a partner -- the dancers form lines, or circles. Our social dance meets on Friday evenings -- indoors during the fall, winter, and spring, and outdoors, in Beacon Hill Park, from mid-June to early-August"
