We are a recreational group dedicated to enjoying and teaching traditional Scandinavian dance. We dance and teach couple dances and lively mixers from all five Nordic countries. Each Monday typically brings out 30 or more dancers of all abilities. We dance at Nordia House, 8800 SW Oleson Rd, Portland. Click here for map.
Mark your calendars! We will have some exciting visitors (and some locals) for the Harvest Dance (will confirm the venue as soon as we know).

Norske Runddansere does not discriminate. Anyone is welcome to join us- all you need is a willingness to give it a try.
Happening August 19th, 2019
Hello Dance friends,
These weeks go by so quickly. Summer days keep us out and about and the days fly by. Here we are again looking at Monday already. It’s time to get out for some dancing.
Our good guy Bill will be at the helm this week, so you know that’s got to be a hoot. In addition, we can look for our fiddle queen Ms. Kim and maybe some of her talented friends. We had unexpected guests last week and it was a grand time. If you stuck around last week, you’ll recall I snuck in a quick and lovely bonus dance that I carried back from Sweden. That’s uncommon and it wasn’t scheduled, but it was worth breaking out.
You can still find us at 8800 SW Oleson Road in Portland, and we start up at 7:30 pm. I’d be pleased to see you there. Please come and join us.
Monday dances: September-May there is a free lesson from 7:30 to 8:30, with open request dancing to 10pm. Summer Monday dances start at 7:30, but there are no lessons in summer. There is also usually some warm-up time from 7:00-7:30. Admission is $5 per person or see below about yearly memberships.
Become a Member - It's a Great Deal
Memberships are now pro-rated at $20 for the rest of the fiscal year. That means you get in to all lessons and dances at no additional cost through September 30th. (The full year starting October 1st is $60). This is a fabulous dance deal, at a little more than $1/week. It's never to late to join and start saving.
Thank You Musicians and DJs!
A big thanks to those who play tunes for us every Monday!
Why? These days our membership fees are just almost enough to meet our expenses. We didn't want to raise them this year, so we're putting a donation jar on the entry table and hoping for the best! If you can help, thank you!
We also have our own teaching DVDs for sale (set of two for $10) and our new sturdy shoe bags for $10 each if you want to contribute that way!
