About Harrow Folk Dance Club

Harrow Folk Dance Club (HFDC) started in 1970, initially as an evening class at the instigation of our founder, John Lawes. It very quickly became a fully functioning Folk Dance Club and during its history has catered for Maypole dancing, Morris dancing, Clog dancing, American Square-Thro dancing as well as traditional English Folk Dancing - which is now the main activity of the club.

The Club is a registered charity and affiliated to the English Folk Dance and Song Society. We are also affiliated to the Hertfordshire Folk Association.

Twice a year we host Saturday evening dances to which members of surrounding clubs are invited. One is a "Playford Ball" when guests will often attend dressed in period costume of the 17th and 18th century.

Some club members enjoy attending summer Dance Festivals in different parts of the country and will often bring back new dances for club members to try.
