About Us

Founded in 2011, Carpathia Folk Dance Ensemble is DC’s only multi-ethnic folk dance performance group. We currently perform dances from Ukraine, Romania, Poland, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Macedonia, Bulgaria, Moldova, and of the Roma/Gypsy people. Our group is all-volunteer and comes from a variety of backgrounds including immigrants from countries we represent to people who do not even have ethnic background from our countries. What brings us together is a passion for dance, music, and sharing cultures with audiences throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. Our group is not for profit and we strive in our mission to present and preserve the cultural dance of the countries we cover.
