Scandinavian Dance Groups

With all the Scandinavian activities in the greater Washington metropolitan area it is possible to lead a Scandinavian-only lifestyle here, including dancing! There are two Saturday evening social dances (with lessons) and the Nordic Dancers' lessons and practice on Wednesday evenings.
