Manitoba International Folk Dance Association
MIFDA (or Manitoba International Folk Dance Association) is a recreational international folk dance group that has been active in the Winnipeg area since the 1970s. We're mostly about having fun with an emphasis on participation.
International Folk Dancing involves learning and performing traditional dances from a variety of cultures from around the world. The dances range from peaceful and relaxing to energetic and aerobic. Most of our repertoire is line and circle dances from various Balkan and Middle East countries, but we also do many partner dances and mixers from Europe and North America.
