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.

Happening January 14th, 2019
On Knut's Day all good Scandinavians dance once more around their Christmas tree and then they dance it right out the door! This is what will happen this Monday. We will have HAPSALA playing music for us, we will be dressed in Bunads or some other festive clothing, we will bring some wonderful treats to share - either finger food or drink- and dance till our feet hurt.
This party will be free for all Norske Runddansere and Leikarringen of Portland members. If you are not a member yet, you might consider joining NR with the pro-rated fee of $45 which is good until the end of September. Can't get a better deal than that! (Otherwise the fee for this party will be $12 for dancers or $5 for listeners).
We hope to see you on Monday ready to have a great time dancing and socializing and enjoying treats we all are contributing.
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!
