Founded in 1947, <a href="http://www.folkdancers.org/">HIFD is a not-for-profit (501c3) organization dedicated to the preservation and enjoyment of ethnic dance from around the world. Primarily a recreational group that meets twice weekly, HIFDalso stages folk dance performances for events and festivals throughout the calendar year.

HIFDmembership is open to all, and currently numbers about seventy-five, including a pool of approximately 20 dancers who are active in public performances. The groups repertoire includes more than 300 dances from 39 countries, with emphasis on those of Europe, the Middle East, and Mediterranean areas. While some performances present a mixture of dances and costumes from various countries, others focus on a single ethnic theme.

Local folk dance teachers well-versed in many ethnic traditions provide teaching at the occasional HIFDfolk dance workshops, in which participants can request what they would like to have taught or reviewed. In addition, our statewide counterpart,Texas International Folk Dancers, sponsors a four-day workshop each year during the Thanksgiving holidays, and the weekend-longSan Antonio Folk Dance Festivalin March at Spring Break. These give HIFDmembers even more exposure to internationally known folklorists, teachers and musicians.

HIFDwelcomes the opportunity to bring song, dance and music from other cultures to interested parties, and hopes that by so doing, we help preserve the uniqueness of the individual cultures as well as promote peace among all ethnicities.
