What Is Tapestry Folkdance Center? 

Tapestry strives to build community and appreciation for a wide range of cultural traditions through dance. Every week over 700 people come through our studios to engage in world dance forms. Whether Ballroom, Contra, English Country, Flamenco, Somali or Contemporary Modern, all ages and all skill levels join us in celebrating world dance. In 2022-2023, Tapestry Folkdance Center plans to revive hosting weekend-long dance events and workshops with guest instructors from around the world. 


Currently each week Tapestry Folkdance Center offers +30 in-person classes and dances with a few continuing online options. Our programs include: Ballroom, English Country, International, Seniors, Contra, and Family dances with several sessions offering live music from an array of talent. Professional instructors or callers lead specific lessons and offer plenty of time for open dancing. 

AND monthly there are over 125 musicians, instructors and callers as independent contractors sharing their talents, plus several small groups here each week to dance, rehearse and create!  Check our website https://www.tapestryfolkdance.org and view our online calendar for more information. 


Tapestry Folkdance Center was founded in 1983 by a group of dedicated folk dancers.  In 1999, a building was purchased in South Minneapolis. In 2023, we will celebrate our 40th Anniversary.
