There are hundreds of sites on the Internet with information about where to dance. Below is a SHORT list. Be aware that the listings are not always up-to-date and you should use any contact information prior to attending any group listed.
The sites below are fairly broad in scope. There tend to be international folk dance clubs and classes in the major city(ies) of most states. Most of those clubs/classes have a website.
If you use a good search engine and type in “international folk dance” and the state or city, you should get results that will connect you to dancing in that area.
