Folk Dancing facilitates personal and social development in a fun and engaging way, helps build self-confidence, improve co-ordination, balance, sense of rhythm etc.; it promotes leadership skills and teamwork; it opens our eyes to different cultures in the world.
"Dance is music made visible"(George Balanchine); and those who play music together stay together. GBIFD members dance to build a healthy community!
Spring is usually a busy time of the year for our core group. We have performances at Grey Bruce One World Festival in May, at United Way of Bruce Grey's Seniors Fair in June, and a "Let's Dance" event at Owen Sound Canada Day Celebration on July 1st.
