Sadly, after more than 50 years of weekly Monday night dancing, VIFD will no longer host weekly dancing throughout the year.

VIFD will continue teaching and dancing in Stanley Park in the summers.  See details below.

As well we continue the tradition of hosting a Christmas party with live music in early December.
