We are a recreational dance group of international folk dancers, also known as the “Sarasota Grapeviners”.  We have been dancing at the John Chidsey Bayfront Community Center in Sarasota every Wednesday evening since 1995.  Our dance “specialty” – International Folk Dancing – exposes us to the music and dance from a variety of countries such as Bulgaria, Greece, Romania, Macedonia, Serbia, Israel, Turkey, Croatia, and others. We also do line dances that are typically from the US.  Most of the dances are done in a circle or line; therefore
NO PARTNER is required.
