Happening June 24th, 2019
Hello dance friends,
It is officially summer, and that means time for even more dancing, even if it still feels like spring this Monday night.
As Allen said last week, we dance all year long, but last week was the last teaching session of the spring and lessons are now suspended until September. The evening starts right in with dancing, no teaching, so be sure to bring the names of your favorite dances, and any newly taught ones you need work on, to the request list on the white board at the DJ table. (Extra points for correct spelling!)
The SoundMeister this week is the excellent musician and sound-person, Mr. Carl. And who knows, maybe someone will bring a fiddle or nyckelharpa and play some tunes, too.
Doors open at 7 pm and dancing begins right at 7:30 pm at Nordia House, 8800 SW Oleson Road in Portland.
Hope to see you Monday.
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!
Everyone is Welcome!
Norske Runddansere does not discriminate. Anyone is welcome to join us- all you need is a willingness to give it a try.
