Leikarringen of Portland

Leikarringen of Portland is a multi-age performing dance group. We practice September to June on Tuesday evenings with kids ages four thru young adults. Practices are held at Trinity United Methodist Church at 3915 SE Steele Street (lower level). Please email or call to verify that we indeed have a practice that night! We do have some holiday weeks off. Dance starts at 6:45 for the younger dancers and for the older we practice 7:30-9pm. The level is not solely based on age but also the skill level and number of years they have danced. We do dances from all Nordic countries as well as a few others just for fun! No need to be Scandinavian to participate in these joyful dances and meet our terrific group of dance families. We are sponsored by Norske Runddansere and Daughters of Norway. Contact director Christie Stilson (503) 449-9004. Email: Christiestilson@yahoo.com. Visited us on Facebook: Leikarringen of Portland.
