IFDA cultural history

Welcome to the International Folk Dance Association of University City, or IFDA.  Incorporated in 1964, the IFDA has been serving the greater St. Louis area for over 50 years as a non-profit organization dedicated to the teaching and enjoyment of folk dances and to the sharing of knowledge and appreciation of folk cultures from around the world.  The IFDA and its activities are open to anyone interested in international folk dancing or folklore. 

For everyone's safety, you must be fully vaccinated against Covid to enter.  Masks are optional.  If you are attending for the first time, please record your last vaccination date at the door.  The latest Covid booster is encouraged for all who are eligible.


Our friends at The Focal Point have generously allowed us the use of their beautiful dance floor on Thursday evenings.
