One of the best Scandinavian events of the year is happening on Wednesday, with a night of wild salmon and traditional Norwegian dancing and music at the Leif Erikson Lodge in Ballard.
The dinner buffet starts at 6pm, with a 7:30pm dance performance by Tom Sears and Zena Corcoran, accompanied by dancers of Nordahl Grieg Leikarring and Spelemannslag and music from fiddler Loretta Kelley, and Bill Likens on accordion. Kids from Poulsbo Leikarringen will then take the stage, followed by a public dance and instruction from local Norwegian musicians.
From the organizers: “Come and enjoy the immersion for all levels of dancing from beginning to advanced into all the types of Norwegian folkdancing and music from the bygdedansar, runddansar, songdansar, and turdansar og rekkedansar (figure dances and longways dances).”
Tickets for the event are $30 (ages 13 and over), $15 for kids ages 6-12, and free for kids 5-years-old and under.
