Next weekend, August 16-18 is a great opportunity for Seattle-area Norwegians and Norwegian-Americans with a love for traditional Norwegian music and dancing to participate in the Norsk Folkedans Stemne, being held at Camp Brotherhood in Mount Vernon, Washington.
Learning and sharing Norwegian dancing and music with folk dancing groups of all ages from Norway, Canada, and the United States are the primary purposes of Norsk Folkedans Stemne. The event is unique in the United States for performing Norwegian folk dancing groups. Families and individuals who are interested in Norwegian folk dancing are encouraged to attend, too. Everyone comes to learn new dances, music, songs, and to review some familiar dances and steps. Improving dancing and folk dancing groups is important to all the participants. All weekend, dance and music sessions take place. Time is also taken to relax with friends by the pool or over a cup of coffee. Each evening there is social dancing featuring our Norwegian guests and local musicians.
