    Swedish Dancers

    Date: Monday, February 11, 2019
    Time: 7:00pm to 8:00pm
    Location: Wellness Conference Center

    Volkdanslag is a group of adults who

    appreciate and enjoy Scandinavian folk dancing.

    Some of the members have danced since their

    youth participation in Svensk Hyllningsfest and

    the Smoky Valley High School Swedish Folk

    Dancers. Others are relatively new to the game.

    Volkdanslag meets weekly to rehearse under the

    direction of Dr. Duane Fredrickson, a retired

    physician. Annually the group participates in folk

    dance festivals in Omaha, Nebraska, and Estes

    Park Colorado, as well as performing for Santa

    Lucia, Midsummers Day, Svensk Hyllningsfest,

    and for any number of area civic organizations.

    Members perform in 19th-century folk costume to

    experience folk dances, to have fun and to get

    great exercise.

    The one-hour program will also feature Holly

    Lofton, Director of the Lindsborg Convention and

    Visitors Bureau. She will open the program with

    a PowerPoint presentation depicting the

    settlement of the northern half of McPherson

    County and the development of Scandinavian folk

    and festival traditions.
