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 April 15th, 2019
Hello Dance friends,
Okay, moving on once you've finished your tax returns. We are going to ease your troubled mind and focus on a new dance.
Our guy Dave Charlebois will introduce an new Swedish polska from Jarvso. This is good dance to build on those skills we have been learning. I think you will enjoy this dance.
It will be Allen hosting the evening so who knows what will happen. He's so unpredictable, but usually fun. In addition, we're likely to have live music again. Kim has been doing a great job of bringing more new talent to our events. We've had as many as five musicians in recent weeks. If you missed that.....well, you missed something. Don't miss this one.
The dance starts at 7:30 at Nordia House. Please bring indoor shoes to wear on the 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 $30 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!
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.
