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.
