Fall, Winter, Spring Dancing:

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

VIFD continues 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.

For more information contact Susan Pinkham at 778 580 7508, [email protected]

Also check out the links below to other groups in the area that continue regular weekly dancing.
