Music is the founding principle of FolkMADS. Find out more about local bands, practices, concerts, and jams on the Music page.
Contra Dance and English Country Dance are our most frequent dances. We also host cross step waltzing events and occasionally throw in some Squares and Morris dances too. More information and a complete calendar of events can be found on the Events page.
Callers are the bridge between the musicians and the dancers. Navigate to the Callers page to find out more about regional callers and how to learn to call.
