Flying Cloud Academy of Vintage Dance
The Flying Cloud Academy is dedicated to the preservation, performance, and teaching of historic ballroom dance and music. The FCA creates and maintains a thriving vintage dance community which provides opportunities for dancers at all levels to enjoy the magic of authentic historic dance and other related traditions. We share our love of dance through classes, performances, and the recreation of elegant evenings of dancing in period settings.
"The Flying Cloud dancers were wonderful! They were professional, considerate, and always drew a large crowd to watch them dance."
