We invite you to become part of our NFO family — dance professionals and practitioners, from across the nation, who share a love for folk dance and all things connected – the people, the cultural arts and traditions, and the music.  Ours is a simple passion for supporting and advancing folk dance and associated events in our local communities across the United States.  We love dancing – and we love the people who do it.

Our association offers you and your community a network of support, including insurance for your local organization and events, and a variety of financial grants.  We will also hook you up with events and activities to link you to talented people and many other important resources.
