Note: RSVP counts here are much lower than actual attendance, because most folks who attend are via the Folklore Society of Greater Washington and Scandinavian communities and not in this Meetup group.
Potluck at 6:30 pm followed by dancing. Addictive dances, some with elements like Swing or Hambo. Loretta Kelley will play mesmerizing mostly-springar dance music on her magical hardingfele (Hardanger fiddle). Plus, as often happens when the hardingfele takes a break, we may be infiltrated by nyckelharpas or other Swedish delights.... Beginners, singles/couples, watchers/listeners all welcome. Bring clean shoes to wear, food to share, and $$ you can spare. No need to bring a partner--we mix and switch gender so all can dance. Newbies will be welcomed, encouraged, and assimilated.
