Welcome to the Webpages of The Nutbrook International Folk Dancing Group.
We are a mixed gender group of dancers who meet every Thursday between
8.00 - 10.00pm at Grangewood Methodist Church Hall, Grangewood Road,
Wollaton. NG8 2SJ.
We dance a variety of Mixed International dances, selected from countries ranging from those in Western and Eastern Europe, the Balkans, Israel, Turkey, the Americas and beyond.
As many of the dances are in lines and circles partners are not always necessary, therefore Nutbrook I.F.D.G is suitable for both couples and individuals alike.
Twice a year a Day of Dance workshop is organised. Here dances from particular countries are chosen and taught by specialist teachers from the Society for International Folk Dance. In 2012 for example, we welcomed Anne Leach and enjoyed a day of Scandinavian dance.
We always welcome new members and look forward to meeting you on Thursday evenings!
We are affiliated to The Society for International Folk Dancing
