Scandinavian folk dances include some of the world's most beautiful couple dances, accessible to everyone, beginners and experienced dancers alike. We are a group of all ages and live in or around NYC, we love dancing to and playing Swedish and Norwegian music. We always like to see new faces at our events!

Join us on Wednesday evenings and discover the thrill of dancing to live music by members and friends of the NY Spelmanslag, playing on fiddles, hardingfele, nyckelharpa and other folk instruments.

Feel free to download our flyer and please join our emailing list for announcements of weekly teaching and special events.

For details on upcoming workshops and parties see our special events.

We are friends with other dancers and fiddlers around the world, and there are dance events all over the US that are fun to visit. Some are listed on our dancing elsewhere page.

Winter/Spring 2019/2020

December 18th, 2019A very special End of Season Party.  We'll have a triple treat!

Andrea Hoag is a Grammy nominee with decades of  traditional Swedish music performances in America. 

Karl Lundebergdraws on his Norwegian-American heritage and his years of composing for theater and film to create some very interesting traditional-based music.

Loretta Kelley is well-known both in this country and in Norway for her truly wonderful and expert Norwegian fiddling on the traditional hardingfele.  

We are unbelievably excited to have them come and play!

Whether you have had some dance experience, or are curious to see what the traditional dance and music of Sweden and Norway is all about, please come join us!  We will not be teaching at this session but always help newcomers get started--and we will start up a new series of teaching and request dancing in January.

Or come join us the two Wednesdays before the 18th (December 4 & 11). We'll do some teaching and will coach one-on-one as needed to get you ready for the party on the 18th! (as well as for any Swedish or Norwegian dancing at Golden Festival in January).
