Welcome to Redding International Folk Dancers

We are a recreational international folk dance group in Redding, California. Currently we are hosting two different dances series:


We dance Fridays from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m. at the Redding Arts Project (formerly the Redding Ballet Academie), 1726 Market Street, across from the Cascade Theatre. Cost is $3. (First-timers are free!)

All Fridays September through June. See postings below for holidays or other occasional schedule changes.

Each evening is a combination of teaching, review, and open request dances. You'll hear a wide range of diverse music. Folk dance is great exercise and just plain fun. Our dances come from all around the world.

If you're interested in coming...Stop by, drop in for just a while or for the whole evening. We tend to start the evening with easier dances and work in intermediate to advanced dances as the night goes on.


On select Saturdays 7:00-10:00 p.m. Our currently scheduled dates for 2018 are: January 27, February 17, April 21, June 2,

Admission $8 adults/$4 students

Contra Dances are at:
Odd Fellows hall in Palo Cedro IOOF/Rebekah Hall - Off of Hwy 44 22551 Silverlode Lane


Wear comfortable clothes and shoes. We recommend shoes that stay securely on your feet (no flip flops!) and with a smooth or light tread (so you can pivot or slide a bit). Bring water.

All dancers are welcome: beginners, experienced folk dancers, guests, visitors....anyone who enjoys dancing. No partner required. (Contra dances are a "partnered" dance, but we don't have fixed partners so everyone gets a chance to join in.)

Updates on the schedule and special events are listed below. Most recent announcements are at the top.
