Information: A magazine.

Let's Dance! has been published from about 1942 to the present as the official news magazine of the Folk Dance Federation of California, Inc., with news of the federated clubs' activities as well as dance material, costume material, and some background news.

Following Ed Kremers came Bret van Kreidt and Roy Zellick. Kay Biel was the editor in 1945. Henry Glass took over and then from 1946 to 1947 the editor was Henry Koopman. Millie von Konsky followed and Wayne Wills became editor in 1948. Bob Lamont became editor in 1950 followed by Lawton Harris. In 1953, Bob Cnevalier was appointed for two years. Charles Alexander became editor in 1955 and then in 1957 Jane Molinari was handed the job. Vi Dexhimer became editor in October of 1957. Other editors followed.

The magazine started as "The Federation Folk Dancer" by Ed Kremers Sr. and Clarice Wills. However, they changed the name to "Let's Dance" prompted by complaints from Michael and Mary Ann Herman, publishers of The Folk Dancer magazine.

With the January 1951 issue, it became "Let's Dance!" (with an exclamation point!). Then in May 1953, it went back to "Let's Dance." With the February 2003 issue, the name returned to "Let's Dance!" where it has been ever since!
