Organized in 1956 under the direction of Mary Bee Jensen, The International Folk Dance Ensemble is one of BYU’s premiere performing groups. Edwin G. Austin, Jr., has directed the ensemble since 1985 and the ensemble’s repertoire includes many of Austin’s own choreographic works. He is supported by a production team of seasoned professionals: Jeanette Geslison, Delynne Peay, Mark Geslison, Benjamin Sanders, and Colleen West. In additions, guest experts from around the world enrich the ensemble’s diverse repertoire with new choreography each year.
