IFDC Button The International Folk Dance Club

The International Folk Dance Club is a group of folk dancers who meet every Friday night at the Faculty of Education building at the University of Toronto. This site provides information for their location and contacts, as well as Special Events listings. It was designed by Bill Baird, one of the group's organizers, who passed away in January 2004. I reworked some of the site's features (ie: the location map), and have developed the new site since then.
