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. Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 and physical distancing requirements to slow the spread of the virus, we have suspended dance until it is safe to dance again. We are watching for changes in the recommendations of health experts and of the Governor, and will make an announcement when we feel we can resume gathering. When we are able to dance again, we dance at Nordia House, 8800 SW Oleson Rd, Portland. Click here for map.

Thank You Musicians and DJs!
A big thanks to those who play tunes for us every Monday!
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.
