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.

Why? Our membership fees are just almost enough to meet our expenses. Our rent went up very significantly this year, so we still have a donation jar on the entry table. If your budget allows, would you please consider adding a little extra to your membership dues? If you can help, we thank you so very much!
We also have our own teaching DVDs for sale (set of two for $10) and our sturdy shoe bags for $10 each if you want to contribute that way!
Thank You Musicians and DJs!
A big thanks to those who play tunes for us every Monday!

Your Event Planning Committee:
Weekly Dances - Lessons!
Monday dances: Suspended due to COVID-19. Click here for a remote dance lesson! In normal times...September-May there is a lesson from 7:15 to 8:15pm, with open request dancing to 9:30. Summer Monday dances start at 7:15, but there are no lessons in summer. There is also usually some warm-up time from 7:00-7:15. Drop-in admission is $7 per person or see below about yearly memberships. There is a student discount (up to age 25).
Become a Member - It's a Great Deal
Annual memberships are available. The fiscal year starts October 1st at a rate of $100. That's still only about $2.25 per dance if you attend them all, which is a great deal! In January our pro-rate schedule begins, and we also have other special discounts for those who need it, like students. It's never too late to join and start saving. Get a membership application here.
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.
