Hambo is a beautiful turning dance for couples in 3/4 time. It is a polska variation, sometimes called the national dance of Sweden. The hambo known and loved by North Americans is the Hälsinge Hambo from Hälsinge, Sweden.
The Hälsingehambon is a dance competition held every July, starting in Hårga, Sweden, about 180 miles north of Stockholm.
