Hi! My Norwegian language skills are pretty fluent, Scandinavian dance skill a bit less so. I lived & went to school in Norway & maintain relationships with extended (& extensive) family there. Several years ago I did some teaching in Oslo -- a dream come true. It's been joked that if there is a Norwegian within 50 miles, I will find them (or they me.) When I lived in NY, I got involved with The American Scandinavian Society, a very large & active community. Fun! Looking forward to meeting more of the local Norwegian & Scandinavian community.
My heritage is 3/4 Norwegian & 1/4 Swedish. My dad came to the US to go to school & my mom was born here, Norwegian father, Swedish mother. They met on a ship headed out of NY harbor for Norway. And I was born about 2 years later! That's my intro!
A delightful community!
