Community Calendar Spotlight on the International Folk Dance Workshop

In 1947 Michael Solomon, a recreation employee for the City of Dayton, was introduced to international folk dancing by some neighbors. He got hooked and started a folk dancing class in 1952 sponsored by the City of Dayton’s Recreation Department. The class was so popular that a new club was formed call the Miami Valley Folk Dancers, led by Michael Solomon.  The club has members of all ages, and the initial membership fee of $1.00 per month is still in effect today.


The Miami Valley Folk Dancers will sponsor an International Folk Dance Workshop from 9:30 a.m.-5:00 p.m. on June 11 and 12 at the Michael Solomon Pavilion in Dayton. Master teacher, Roberto Bagnoli, from Rome, Italy will teach folk dances from a variety of countries including the Balkans, Israel, and Turkey.
