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 July 14th, 2019
Hello Dance fans,
Speaking of fans, they’re working overtime at Nordia House where I look forward to seeing all of you on Monday. What better way to end a hot summer Monday than dancing the evening away in a comfortably cool palace of relief.
Our host this week is Bill Hoyland, playing tunes you won’t be able to resist in addition to those that you request. And if that’s not enough it’s very likely we’ll also enjoy the live music of various and sundry musical friends. Let’s support them as they support us.
We’ll be watching for you. Hope to see you there.
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.
