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.
