Come join us for folk dancing at the library! Selected folk dances will be taught and audience participation is encouraged.
Folk dancing is a wonderful, joyful and uplifting way to exercise, socialize and communicate. The melodies to which we move are breathtakingly beautiful. The dances we do are from cultures around the world including Albania, Armenia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Hungary, Israel, Macedonia, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Turkey, Ukraine, and more.
We dance in circles, lines, couples and sets. No partners or previous dance experience is necessary. We recommend dressing casually and wearing comfortable shoes.
Presented by Charles Gross and Walter Kasian of the Monmouth Folk Dancers.
The Monmouth Folk Dancers dance every Tuesday evening from 7:30 - 10:00 pm at the Embury United Methodist Church, 49 Church Street, Little Silver. A small fee includes dance instruction and light refreshments. The group is varied and includes singles and couples, young and old, a cross section of people united by a common love of dancing.
See the display: Folk costumes, many collected by group members, will be on display in the library lobby for the month of October, and represent the original clothing from their country of origin.Eastern Branch
