About the Workshop

Some find Scandinavian music and dance to be lyrical and flowing. Others find it to have drive and passion. Come and decide for yourself.

Join us for some non-partner, Covid-friendly dances to lovely and fun Norwegian and Swedish music. All of the dances can be done in small or large, carpeted or not, dance spaces with limited turning.

About Roo

Roo Lester began with international folk dance while in college that later led to an MA in Dance Ethnology from UCLA. Roo has travelled extensively in Norway and Sweden studying dance and participating in dance and music events. She taught at FAC Pinewoods and Oktoberfest, and is known for her clear presentations with care and respect for the dance traditions. Covid time has offered opportunities to learn new and adapt some dances. We welcome Roo back to the FAC!
