First Unitarian Church, 600 N.W. 13, will be the site of a special teaching program by the Oklahoma City International Folkdancers. Acclaimed dancer and instructor Sally Jenkins will lead classes to include dances from Bulgaria, Romania and other countries.


Classes begin Monday, May 7 at 7:30 p.m. And will typically last until 9:30 p.m. Material and instruction appropriate to both beginners and experienced dancers will be provided.


Sally Jenkins’ impressive “vita” as a folk dancer includes membership with Tulsa International Folkdancers (where she presently is teaching director) and the Texas International troupe; she founded the Bartlesville Community and Family Dance program in 2006.


Her broad repertoire and energetic teaching style, fans say, have made her an “in-demand” instructor. She has presented programs for social clubs, OK Mozart Festival, retirement homes, scout troops and other groups. She believes “folk dancing is a positive force in making the world a better place.”


The folkdancers group meets at First Unitarian each Monday, 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., with beginner’s sessions from 7 p.m.to 8 pm.vFor more information, contact: Beverly Rapp, 843-7005.
