Want to try a new pastime this fall?
Burnaby International Folk Dancers are inviting new members to turn out starting Sept. 3. The group teaches a variety of folk dances from around the world and performs in small groups (performances are optional) at a variety of community events and at schools and care facilities.
No partners are needed, and no costumes are required. Beginners are welcome.
Dance nights run Tuesday evenings from September to June at Charles Rummel Community Centre, 3630 Lozells Ave. There’s a basic steps class from 6:30 to 7 p.m. and dancing from 7 to 9:30 p.m.
This year will also mark the group’s 40th anniversary, and a special pot luck dinner and folk dancing party is coming up Oct. 5.
