Folkdancers' Association of Nova Scotia
We are a group of people who enjoy traditional dances from around the world.
We provide opportunities for the promotion of that enjoyment in our community of Halifax, Nova Scotia.
We have a "feet on" approach! We offer the following variety of International Folkdancing experiences in metro.

Thursday Evening Dances
A relaxed, recreational setting is maintained, while we primarily do folk dances from South-Eastern Europe and the Near East (including Albania, Bulgaria, Greece, Israel, Macedonia, Romania and Turkey).
The level of difficulty usually progresses through the evening, with teaching and review near the beginning. Later on, dances are chosen from the participants' requests.
When: 7:30pm - 10:00 pm Thursday
From 7:30pm to 8pm, there will be dance instruction and review.

In the summer we dance on the dock beside the Ferry Terminal in Dartmouth, weather permitting.

We in Nova Scotia have had the privilege of having Yves here to teach a workshop seven times in the past thirty-two years. His styling, expertise, teaching prowess, vivacity and humour have captivated us anew each time. We are delighted to be able to offer another chance to learn from this wonderful man.
Yves has announced his impending retirement from travelling the world to teach. This will likely be our last workshop with him!
Yves Moreau lives in Montreal, Quebec, and is recognized as one of North America's foremost exponents of Bulgarian dance and folklore. He has traveled to Bulgaria almost annually between 1966 and 1986 to research dance and to record music in all regions of the country. He has also lectured and conducted workshops throughout North America as well as in Europe, Asia, Oceania and South America.
