- Scandinavian Dance ClassSodal Hall in The Avalon Ballroom, BOULDER, CO$7.00
The weekly Monday Night Scandinavian Dance continues in the new year. Learn Scandinavian couple dancing (polskas and pols).
No partner needed, just low-friction, hard-soled shoes so that you will be able to pivot (spin) on the beautiful and smooth Avalon hardwood floors. Pivoting easily and frequently is necessary for fast-turning Polska and Pols dances. These classes build skills from week to week so one should try and attend regularly - this type of dance is difficult to learn with a single drop-in but do come and try it out and see if you would like to do more. Come and dance to beautiful Scandinavian fiddle tunes and live music.
Come dance with us every Monday night (except when Monday falls on or very near a major holiday - check The Avalon dance calendar! We teach the first hour, followed by open dancing, usually with live music.
