Springdans Northwest, April 17–20, 2015, will feature two great dances, Finnskogspols and Slängpolska. Who’s teaching? Some of Sweden’s finest dance and music instructors! Check out the application form in this newsletter (and
available on Skandia’s website) for details about the stellar lineup.

If you haven’t heard of Springdans, it’s Skandia’s annual residence folkdance camp, held at the charming Seabeck Conference Center in Seabeck, WA. Each day, Skandia offers dance and music classes, and in the evenings, dancers kick up their heels to a great variety of unbeatable folk dance music.

Participants need a minimum of 1–2 years’ experience with Scandinavian couple turning dances, and should expect to change partners frequently during classes.

Springdans, now in its 22nd year, is lucky to have many loyal fans who attend each year, and they join us in heartily welcoming newcomers. Because camp fills up early, and we typically have a waiting list for follows, please submit your application soon.

We hope to see you at Springdans in April!

Dance leads, Springdans needs you!

We’ve received an early and large number of applications for Springdans Northwest, including 11 follows without partners. (Registration is limited to 80 dancers and 20 musicians).

At present, we have room for leads (the partnerless follows will thank you!) and musicians. Couples applying now will go on a waiting list.

Please don’t delay in helping us balance the lead/follow ratio!
