    Mission Statement

    The Sacramento International Folk Dance and Arts Council mission is to promote international folk dance and music through: classes, workshops, teacher training, and outreach programs to the general public. The Council is made up of many individual clubs representing a wide range of dance and music. The Council sponsors an annual Camellia International Dance Festival in March, a weekend of dance classes, parties and a concert featuring dance and musical groups. The Council also sponsors other special events related to folk dancing, music, and arts in the greater Sacramento area. Additionally, the Council publishes a monthly newsletter called Latest Steps, this web site, and a membership directory. The Council encourages new members and serves as a way for people to find out what folk-related activities are available in the Sacramento area.

    The activity of learning about other cultures and the growing appreciation for them and their art forms encourages peace and mutual understanding throughout the world and in our own community. We feel that joining, together in the activity of dance is a wholesome, joyful antidote to the pervasive loneliness and alienation that so many people experience. It is healthful both physically and spiritually. It is our goal to spread the joy of dance.

    This site is managed by SIFDAC volunteers.
