SPRING SPRINGAR SPREE

APR 24-26, 2020

in lovely Takoma Park, MD (by Washington, DC)


>>>CANCELLED<<<

You're welcome to ATTEND ALL OR PART OF THE WEEKEND.  There are friendly folks to chat with and goodies to nibble, whether or not you're taking part in what's scheduled. 

Featured dances to be taught are from the HARDANGERFJORD REGION OF WESTERN NORWAY, with stellar Norwegians who got enthusiastic reviews at HFAA 2018:  BRIT KARIN SØRLAND AND PER ØYVIND TVEITEN.  (We request somewhat faster pace to cover more details, yet new dancers are "welcomed, encouraged, and assimilated" here as always.)  THREE DANCE PARTIES with wide variety of music, incl springars, gangars, pols, rull, waltz, Reinlander, and likely also a little Swedish on nyckelharpa.  ALL-LIVE MUSIC by two top US Hardanger fiddlers:  VILDE AASLID and our own LORETTA KELLEY.  (The magical Hardanger fiddle has sympathetic strings under the bowed strings--see HFAA.org.  Springar music is in 3 like waltz, but with distinctive regional lilts in the rhythm.)  Hardanger fiddlers and wannabes, please contact us as early as possible to schedule HARDANGER FIDDLE LESSONS OR CLASSES.  JAM/PRACTICE SPACE for Norwegian or Swedish throughout.  COZY SUNDAY BRUNCH POTLUCK. 

Beginners, part-timers, listeners/watchers ALL VERY WELCOME.  No need to bring a dance partner because we mix, and some enjoy the challenge of switching gender at times so all can dance. 

Contact is Jenny, pi~at~xecu~dot~net, C 24O344OO66.  See MAND.fanitull.org/Home/spring-springar-spree. (If you'd like to help by sharing Spree info, please check with Jenny about an important detail--thanks.)
