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? 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!
Happening September 17th, 2018
Hello again dance friends,
We had a very fine turnout last week for the opening session of the new season. Several new people came to check us out. We enjoyed them and they enjoyed us as well. We were graced with an unexpected musical bonanza. In addition to Kim, she was joined by Denis on fiddle, Sarah on flute, Dave on accordion AND our evening’s deejay and all around generally good guy Carl stepped away from the turntable and played piano with the other four. Who knew? It was really good. Many thanks to our musicians. You are so appreciated.
This week we’ll have a refresher on the easy dances we learned last week and then we’ll add something more to heighten your fun level. Don’t be shy; come and join us once again. Doors open at 7 pm and lessons begin at 7:30 pm. Our other purdy-good-guy Denis will be making music for us in whatever form that takes. You won’t be disappointed.
Remember, we dance all year! We have open request dancing every Monday night, when it is not a holiday, 8:30-10:00 pm, plus special events.
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
Yearly membership for Norske Runddansere is $60 per year, starting October 1st. This is a fabulous dance deal (little more than $1/week). Memberships are pro-rated if you join later in the year. 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!
