Group Information

Scandinavian – Boulder Scandinavian Dancers | Social Dance

We are a performance group promoting the dance and music of Scandinavia. We perform for schools, assisted-living facilities, and at various festivals in the Denver Metro area, and occasionally farther afield. Music for performances is live, provided by either the Boulder Spelemannslag, a group of young fiddlers under the direction of Sharon Gillespie, or by members of the dance group, many of whom play an instrument and/or sing.

We sponsor several dance events:

  • A┬ámonthly social dance on the 2nd Saturday of each month.
  • Fifth Saturday Bygdedans – Featuring a wide range of Swedish and Norwegian traditional dances, emphasizing less commonly done dances, with reviews as needed. Suggestions welcome, in advance or on the spot. On fifth Saturdays of the month (about four times a year).
  • An annual Spring Dance and Music Weekend with teachers from Sweden or Norway, teaching both dance and music.

Social Scandinavian dancing, mostly to live music. The evening is a blend of gammaldans (waltz, hambo, schottis....) and bygdedans (polskas and springars). Requests are honored if at all possible. Partners are not necessary, but we strongly recommend wearing hard-soled shoes, as it makes the dances both easier and more fun. There is no dance during the summer months, June, July, and August.
