The Folk Arts Center and Scandia Boston announce a new “Scandinavian Sundays” participatory dance series featuring music and dance from Sweden and Norway. Dances are held once or twice a month on Sunday afternoons, presenting workshops for musicians and dancers and open dancing to live music. The series offers a wide variety of couple turning dances: Hambo, reinlender/schottis, waltz, various polkas, pols, and polskas. Beginners are encouraged; it’s not necessary to attend with a partner; all genders are welcome!

Your donations to the refreshment table are much appreciated. To protect the hall’s wooden floor, please change from street shoes to clean shoes before dancing. To make turning easier, leather-soled dance shoes or other shoes that slide easily are recommended. For the comfort and well-being of all our dancers, especially those with allergies or asthma, please do not wear perfume or fragranced personal products. Thank you!
