It all started when…

The Berkeley Turkish School parents were waiting in the school yard while their children were in classrooms. Under the leadership of our volunteer Folk Dance Teacher Mehmet Unal, we began training weekly. Since then, together we have been having some serious fun. Dancing, exercising and laughing a lot is our motto. We are a team of volunteer folk dancers and are happy to dance at your events in exchange for donations to Berkeley Turkish School.

  • Dates: Our rehearsals are held every Tuesday evening at 7: 30PM - 9:15PM

  • Registration Fee: $60. ($40 for students).

  • Location: Shawl-Anderson Dance Center, 2704 Alcatraz Ave, Berkeley, CA 94705

If you would like to join our classes, please fill out the form.

WE dance at eventS in exchange for donations to BERKELEY TURKISH SCHOOL. PLEASE GET IN TOUCH WITH US.
