Dancing in the Park

Tuesday Night Music Group


The Monaro Folk Society is a non-profit community organisation, here to enhance your enjoyment and personal growth through active participation in the arts, and a range of community and social activities.

We run a variety of regular dance workshops and events as well as participatory music sessions and performance opportunities in Canberra all year round. Even if you are a beginner with no experience you are most welcome to attend these and see what we have to offer.  Feel free to contact us for further information.


Most of our dance events have been suspended in 2020 due to Covid 19, however
Dancing in the Park  will go ahead in December 2020 and January 2021,
hopefully as a gradual easing back into dancing. Click here for details.

We are also holding music sessions.  The format for these is usually a core group
together in one location while using Zoom for other remote musicians to join in the proceedings.

We have prepared a Covid Safe Plan as guidance for organisers of group sessions.
