25th AnniversaryCutting the cake - 25 years!

The Ruritanian International Folkdance Club, Inc. has been providing and promoting opportunities in heritage and ethnic dancing for nearly 40 years.

Members include not only enthusiasts and teachers of international dancing, but several who provide classes and lead performing groups in specific ethnic styles. Click here for Ruritanian Club membership form!

Activities run by the Club itself are mostly public dance parties and workshops. Workshops are presented by world-class visiting tutors or local teachers sharing fresh experience or special expertise. See the Auckland Events page on the Folk Dance NZ website for the latest.

The quarterly magazine, "Ruritanian Roundabout," publicises:

The Club is glad of opportunities to help foster a multicultural life in our city, and to assist those who would like to share their culture with others.
