The dance company’s repertoire comes from countries and borderless cultures around the world, including Albania, Armenia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Hungary, Israel, Macedonia, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Turkey, Ukraine, and more. Dances may be in circles, lines, couples, and sets. Partners or previous dance experience are not necessary. We recommend dressing casually and wearing comfortable shoes for those who wish to participate.

On June 20, 1950, a notice published in the Red Bank Register announced that “A Community Folk Dance will be held Saturday night” in Middletown Village, NJ. The program would open with instruction for beginners, and would include dances from Sweden, Norway, Denmark, America, Russia and Israel. That group evolved into the Monmouth Folk Dancers (MFD), and for the last 66 years beginners and experienced dancers have been folk dancing together on Tuesday evenings, in Red Bank, NJ.
Funding has been made possible in part by a general operating support grant from the New
Jersey Historical Commission, a Division of the Department of State, through grant funds
administered by the Monmouth County Historical Commission.
