Teaching This folk dance teacher list of more than 600 Master Teachers is not comprehensive. It is compiled from what information could be conveniently gathered. Its intent is to be a historical record of the biographies of Master Teachers who paved the way, as well as those who are currently active.

The criterion for being in this list is that the teacher has taught outside of his or her local group. In other words, has taught at a camp, workshop, seminar, conference, etc.

If you know of a teacher that should be in this list, please contact the Webmaster, giving a biography, including the dances taught, and a large photograph or two.

Also, if you have additional information about a teacher, or a photograph for one that is missing or one that is better than the one we have, please also contact us!


If you would like to host a master teacher at your club, please contact Jay Michtom with the date you would like to have a workshop. (To avoid double-booking, do not contact the teacher directly until Jay lets you know that the date is available.)

While non-Fed clubs can be scheduled, they will not qualify for any Federation fee reimbursement.

Jay will create a schedule and communicate it to the club and the teacher.

The club then contacts the teacher to arrange time and place, perhaps discuss specific dances, agree on fee, and possibly help with transportation and lodging. (The committee will do none of these things.)

After the workshop, the club notifies Jay that the workshop has been done and the fee paid to the teacher. Jay then arranges for reimbursement to the Federation club.

Please contact Jay with your requests for workshops, or any questions.
Jay Michtom, Chair, VMPhone – 818-368-1957 or Email.
