Folk Dancing in Arcata
The Humboldt Folk Dancers hold First Friday parties, special events and classes at the Redwood Raks World Dance Studio in the Creamery Building at 824 L Street in Arcata.
Shoshanna and Adam have made the folk dance club a welcome part of the vibrant dance community that uses their studio. They help promote the variety of dance activities that happen at Redwood Raks and are encouraging all dancers to try all kinds of dance! (So check out the studio schedule and help welcome newcomers from other dance classes!) http://www.redwoodraks.com
Along with a new venue, we are also trying out some new activities at the monthly parties.
Each First Friday Party will start with a dance class at 8:00. This class will include new material as well as a chance to learn or review some of the dances and songs that will be included in the bands’ live music sets.
In addition to the great live music from our local folk bands, each monthly party will also include at least one special presentation, performance or demonstration.
TEACHING AND REQUEST DANCING
Fridays (except First Friday) 8:00 pm St. Alban's Church, 1675 Chester Avenue, Sunnybrae (Arcata), California.
We ask that attendees avoid perfumes and substances which may cause allergic reactions among the other dancers.
First Friday Live Music Parties
Each First Friday of the month (except January and July), we have a dance party with live music with local and guest musicians, including
Chubritza, Musaic, The Ethniks and others!
What kind of dances do we do?
Mainly, we enjoy dances from Europe, North America, the Middle East, and Japan.
We welcome anyone who would like to teach us new dances!
