We welcome any who are interested to come join us & try out Nordic dancing. Attending a rehearsal doesn't obligate you to join... but it's such beautiful dancing & good company that most people do!

We welcome dancers of all ages and abilities; feel free to come alone or bring a friend or partner. Most people in the group have some connection to the Nordic countries - be it by blood, interest, or just love of the dance - but it's hardly necessary.

You'll eventually want smooth-soled dance shoes, but they aren't needed to start. We perform in traditional dress, but have a collection of costumes to loan.


We meet most Wednesday nights from September to June from 7:30 to 10 pm.

If you are interested in coming, please email us to confirm that we're meeting!
