Humboldt Folk Dancers

SCHEDULE

Due to the COVID-19 precautions, we are not meeting in person.

We are switching to the 1st and 3rd (and sometimes 5th) Fridays of each month to Zoom Folk dance. We send the ZOOM link and try to provide links to YouTube videos of our dances in advance. We have a lot of fun!
