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.
Stay tuned for an exciting lineup of musicians in the works for Birthday Ball!

Happening February 11th, 2019
Hello dance friends,
Welcome to winter in Stumptown. It may be cold outside, but once you get yourself moving the climate changes quickly. But don’t take my word for it; check it out for yourself. C’mon out and have a little fun with us. It’ll warm your cockles.
Our friend Heidi will review for us the dances she taught last week, Lideli Galen and Eggans Bugg (here's a youtube clip preview). Our attendance was on the slim side last week so don’t miss out on this dance while you have the opportunity.
It will Allen be serving up the goodies this week, playing the recorded music and directing traffic. Look for unannounced live musicians to arrive by sleigh.
The dance starts at 7:30 at Nordia House. Please bring indoor shoes to wear on our nice floor.
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 $45 for the rest of the fiscal year. That means you get in to all lessons and dances (including Knut Dance and Birthday Ball) 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!
