Dancing the Stigar'n

Skandia Folk Dance - Friday, December 6, 2019 - learn Stigar'n

SKANDIA FIRST FRIDAY DANCE, Cedar Valley Grange, 20526 52nd Ave W, Lynnwood

From 7:30 to 8:30pm, Larry Reinert and Sal Gordon will teach Stigar’n and Knut-Arne’s Reinlender. 

Stigar’n is similar to the Stigvals taught by Kathi and Don in November, with its sidecar hold and active inside leg, but is done to four-beat music. This step also shows up in other dances, such as Hyfs. 

Norwegian dance teacher Knut Arne Jacobsen brought us the reinlender variation we’ve named after him. It’s a good late-night dance, with a gentle motion and fewer turns than the typical reinlender. It has a catchy pattern that crosses the measure. 

This video shows the Stigar’n step (with a resting step to start). 

At 8:30pm, Tinnfelen will gift us with its unique sound— rich in the resonances of the hardanger fiddle, but with some added instruments, as well. Don't miss a polyphonic evening! Class, 7:30pm; dance, 8:30–11pm. 

$15 (Skandia members, $10); kids, free. Information here or 425-954-5262.
