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 Scandinavian countries. Each Monday typically brings
out 30 or more dancers of all abilities.
Monday dances during summer start at 7:30 and do not include lessons. Monday dances September through May are from 7-10 pm. These dances include a free lesson from 7:30 to 8:30. Admission is $5 per person or yearly membership is $60 (pro-rated for folks who start later in the year) — a great deal! We dance at Nordia House, 8800 SW Oleson Rd, Portland. Click here for map.
Thank you musicians!
A big thanks to the musicians who play a few tunes for us almost every Monday! It really livens things up.
Happening This Week – June 26, 2016
Hello again dance friends,
We had plenty of enthusiastic dancers last week, and a wide variety of dances we’ve learned previously. There was also a generous amount of laughter going on, largely because we were having too much fun --- if that’s possible.
This week remember there is no teaching from now until September. In the meantime we have the opportunity to practice the dances we’ve taken the time to learn. Remember, too, that the deejay volunteers invite your requests so that we can do those dances that you particularly like and/or want to practice.
If you are relatively new to our dance group you may not recall the names of some (or all) of our dances. Here is a list of the dances we’ve worked on most recently:
Carl Thor will be playing music for us tonight. Let Carl know your preferences. And if you’re uncertain of some of these steps don’t be shy about asking for a reminder. We’re easy going that way.
One final reminder: there will be NO DANCE on Monday, July 4, Independence Day. Please mark your calendar because you may not get a bulletin next week.
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!
