Welcome to Folk in South Yorkshire!

What is FISY?

Folk in South Yorkshire (FISY) is a not-for-profit umbrella organisation that represents folk dancing clubs and groups in the South Yorkshire area, several of whom are affiliated to the English Folk Dance and Song Society (EFDSS). Membership of EFDSS is not required to attend any of the regular or special dances arranged by FISY or the groups we represent. Being part of an organisation such as EFDSS ensures a level of security for those who take part in the dances, including assurance that the sessions are appropriately insured.
