One of Ballard’s most Scandinavian events is happening soon: Norwegian folk dancing and wild salmon dinner are coming to the Leif Erikson Lodge in August.
The highlight of the evening will be a music and dance performance by Folkedanslaget BUL Tromsøand Bodø Folkedanslaget from northern Norway. After they perform, there will be a public dance with instruction and local Norwegian musicians.
The dinner will be on Wednesday, August 14 — the dinner starts at 6pm and performances begin at 7:30pm.
Tickets are $25 for adults and $12 for children ages 6-12. Proceeds benefit the educational programs of Norsk Folkedans Stemne, a nonprofit dedicated to Norwegian music and dance.
