May’s International Folkdance Program

This month, International Folkdance Fridays will feature dances that can be performed to the music of regional bands that you may find performing at local parties, like the Milwaukee band performing at Tapestry this fall – Orkestar Sloboda. The dances will hail primarily from Serbia and the Balkan countries, but as always, the teacher is responsive to requests from the dancers at hand. Instructor Dan Garvin is an accomplished and experienced International dance teacher with decades of experience. Whether you are new to folkdance or a regular at Tapestry, come and enjoy the party!

  2. Grow and sustain world dance traditions through a broad range of dance offerings and dance education.
  3. Maintain an attractive, accessible, centrally located facility with excellent studios specifically designed for dance.
  4. Serve as a dance home for many different dance groups and communities.
  5. Assure sound ongoing governance and management of the organization.
