With a beautiful array of ethnic costumes and props, International Folk Dance Ensemble presents a program of dances from more than a dozen nations, including Ukraine, Russia, Korea, Poland, Mexico, and the United States.

Since 1964, the ensemble has represented the United States and American culture at folk dance festivals throughout the world, including the festival held in conjunction with the 1988 Seoul Olympics, and the festivals in Haifa, Israel; Confolens, France; and Billingham, England. In addition, the group regularly presents its international repertoire throughout the United States and Canada. Regardless of focus–international or American– Folk Dance Ensemble is highly acclaimed by thousands for its skillful dancing, artistry, and energy.

The performance 'blew our socks off'-nearly two hours of solid, continuous entertainment from a group of 36 performers who are a credit to not only themselves but to BYU. I sat next to a prominent Aboriginal indigenous leader in one of the matinees. He slapped his thighs , yahoo'd, said 'awesome' about 20 times and brought his entire family to the following evening performance. He then. . . presented the group with aboriginal-made gifts-the same spirit affected everyone who attended."

"No one in the audience could have known—from quality, precision, and standards of your troupe—that they were, in fact, an ensemble of college students. As noted by one of our guests, ‘they put a smile back on my face…please bring them back!"
