Dance Lessons Begin!
Happening This Week – Sept. 17, 2017
Hello again dance friends,
Another Monday, another dance at Nordia House. What a pleasant way to start the week off. Last week was enhanced by Kim Majors and two of her stringed friends belting out tunes for us. Our fresh season is underway with introductory lessons for those unfamiliar with our dances. But more that, these are good refreshers for those who have come before.
Paul & Johanna will review Schottis and similar related dances this week. In addition, they will introduce Snoa, a basic turning dance that is lovely to see and do once you grasp the underlying dynamics of partnering.
Liz Higuera will be the mistress of ceremonies, and she takes that position very seriously. We appreciate Liz.
Doors open at 7 p.m., and lessons begin at 7:30 p.m. on Monday. Just before the lessons, at 7:15 we will have a brief period of skills building for those who are interested in putting a little extra oomph into their turns. (Shoes with smooth soles are a plus.)
Come and join us. It’s fun! See you there.
Membership Due Oct 1!
Yearly membership for Norske Runddansere are due by Oct. 1. Only $60! This is a fabulous dance deal (little more than $1/week).
Thank You Musicians!
A big thanks to the musicians who play a few tunes for us almost every Monday! It really livens things up.
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!
Monday dances September through May are from 7-10 pm. These dances include a free lesson from 7:30 to 8:30. Summer Monday dances start at 7:30 and do not include lessons. Admission is $5 per person or yearly membership is $60 (pro-rated for folks who start later in the year) — a great deal! We dance at Nordia House, 8800 SW Oleson Rd, Portland. Click here for map.
