Scandinavian--Boulder Scandinavian Dancers |
We are a performance group promoting the dance and music of Scandinavia. We hold weekly rehearsals, and perform for schools, assisted-living facilities, and at various festivals in the Denver Metro area, and occasionally farther afield. We sponsor a monthly social dance on the 2nd Saturday of each month, and also an annual Spring workshop with teachers from Sweden or Norway, teaching both dance and music. Music 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 are a group that promotes the beautiful dance and music of Scandinavia, through performances, social events, and workshops.
Social Scandinavian dancing, mostly to live music. There is usually a blend of gammaldans (waltz, hambo, schottis....) and bygdedans (polskas and springars). Requests are honored if at all possible. Partners 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.
Regular Event: BSD Rehearsal/Intermediate Intensive Class - Scandinavian Dance
BSD rehearses somewhat irregularly on 1st and 3rd Wednesdays. When NOT rehearsing, we sponsor the Intermediate Intensive dance classes. Classes are announced through the weekly emails from Monday Night Scandinavian Dancing. We will also try to update here.
