Who We Are


We are a small troupe of dancers from the Fermilab International Folk Dance group who enjoy learning and performing the traditional dances of Wales. Our name means "The Red Dragon" - which is the symbol and flag of Wales. We have made traditonal Welsh costumes to wear in the performances.
We gather at Fermilab in Batavia, IL, to dance and at one another's homes to work on costumes.
