Seattle Lilla Spelmanslag sound check

Don't miss Skandia Folkdance Society’s Shoreline dance on Saturday, 5/30, from 7:00–10:00 p.m. at the LDS Meeting House, 14901-30th Ave. NE. The suggested donation is $10, and kids get in free. 

Two talented musical groups, Allspice and Seattle Lilla Spelmanslag, will play tunes for mixers and other joyous Scandinavian dances. The evening will begin with dances easily accessible for those with less experience, so do arrive early, if you're new to dancing. More challenging dances will be reserved for later in the evening.

Wait, there’s more! That night, we'll celebrate the release of the Seattle Lilla Spelmanslag’s first CD, titled “Live!”. These young musicians (ages 7 to 17), bring their youthful joy to the dance floor through their music, and they show their considerable talent in their first acclaimed CD. Come listen to the kids in person; you'll have a chance to buy their CD for home or upcoming road trips.

Don't let inexperience deter you from joining in the fun. You may dance if you wish, but non-dancers are most welcome as well. Come enjoy the toe-tapping music while you watch the dancing (and remember to tell family and friends who could use a good night out).

For those of you who want to hit the dance floor, the evening will be a wonderful opportunity for new and experienced dancers alike, as we celebrate community across skill levels and generations. If you haven't been to this venue, it is perfect for such an event, and it includes a large stage and a fine dance floor. Dancers, smooth-soled shoes are a big plus for Scandinavian turning dances. 

Skandia Folkdance Society is now in its 66th year of offering classes and events to promote and preserve Scandinavian music and dance. Visit us at  for more information.
