Dancing the Trolls Away: Norwegian Movement & Dance

Wed July 29 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

$15

Join Kari Tauring and Carol Sersland as they explore the movements and rhythms of Norwegian folk dance in this online workshop hosted over the videoconferencing platform Zoom. Kari is a Nordic roots educator and performer, and Carol is a Norwegian folk dancer. Together, they have explored how the shapes and forms of Old Norse runes manifest in the postures and purpose of traditional Norwegian dance. Kari and Carol will explain the vocabulary around moving our bodies in a Nordic way: stav (vertical line plumb with the earth), svikt (absorption wave into the earth), tyngde (gravitational limits of absorptive movement), and kraft (upwards power generated in response to the downward process). Workshop participants will learn halling and gangar moves and turns, a stick dance called korsdans, and a song dance called “Komme Alle.” These are dances you can do alone, in pairs, or with well-spaced groups!
