The Bexhill International Folk Dance Group was begun in September 1993 By Lily Avery and Heather Edwards, little imagining it would last for so long. Our small friendly international folk dancing group meets socially to enjoy dance and music from around the world. All dances are taught. There is no need to bring a partner as we all mix in for couple dances.

Sadly Lily no longer teaches or dances but we have a number of teachers each with differing interests and expertise. Rowena Martin specialises in Balkan, Israeli, Armenian and Russian dances, Beryl Hartley teaches English dances and Heather Edwards teaches general international - line, circle and couple dances including some from more exotic locations such as China, Japan, Tahiti and South America. We aim to provide entertaining evenings in Bexhill with a wide variety of international folk dances.

We meet purely socially and do not give displays. The photographs were taken at our 10th anniversary party. Just dress comfortably for normal dance evenings

Unfortunately there is no public transport available in the evening. Cars may be parked in Church Hill Avenue or in the village car park off Cooden Sea Road, a few minutes away.
