Società di Danza Firenze is a cultural association active in Firenze from  2012 and affiliated to the National Federation Società di Danza, founded in Bologna in 1991 and directed by Fabio Mòllica.

Società di Danza promotes historical research, diffusion and practice on Nineteenth Century and Historical dances.
