We are a community of musicians, dancers and singers in the Canberra region who love participating in many different forms of folk music and dance, combining contemporary elements with traditional forms.

Our various groups and activities offer a number of opportunities to get involved, be it to develop your skills, meet like-minded people, have fun, or all of the above.

These include a variety of regular dance workshops and events as well as participatory music sessions and performance opportunities. Most of our groups are open to all comers. For further details, see the drop down menus above, or contact us ua.gro.kloforanom@ofni ta.
