Learning international folk dances is primarily fun. We move, burn calories, and use our brain to remember the steps. We also learn about the culture and music of different countries listening to the lyrics and of course the rhythms and instruments which may be new to us. Dancing brings us together in a fun and beneficial way. So join us to learn dances from around the world - Greece, Israel, Romania, Macedonia, Croatia, Bulgaria, Italy, Ukraine, and others. We will also do some American line dances. No partners are necessary.

Elaine Sohn has been teaching folk dancing since her college days at NYU. She currently teaches at a Senior Center in Brooklyn Heights, and at the Brooklyn College Lifelong Learning Program. For more than 30 years, she has led the Brooklyn Heights International Folk Dance group, as well as teaching for three summers for OLLI at BCC. Although teaching English to immigrant adults is her primary passion, teaching folk dancing is a close second.
