DancesFriday, January 18SKANDIA THIRD FRIDAY DANCE, Cedar Valley Grange, 20526-52nd Ave. W., Lynnwood, WA 98036-7610. Jerry Walsh and Judy Patterson will teach Åtabakspolska, a lovely polska from Jämtland, Sweden. Once you grasp the pattern of this accessible dance, you’ll be glad you did. For those “what do I dance?" moments, try this on for size; you’ll be surprised at its versatility. Teaching starts at 7:30 p.m. We hope to see you in class. After the class, the dance will have music by the Seattle Spelmanslag; you won't want to miss their big sound that's perfect for dancing. In addition, there will be an excellent break set with more than one hardingfele, so you can practice your Norwegian moves! Class, 7:30 p.m.; dance, 8:30–11 p.m. $15 (Skandia members, $10); kids, free. Info: publicity@skandia-folkdance.org, www.skandia-folkdance.org, or (425) 954-5262. ... See MoreSee Less

Instruction and demonstration by Roo and Silje, and wonderful music by Loretta, made this a memorable and productive weekend. Underneath it all was the almost invisible organizing by a group of dedicated volunteers who brought it all together .... from publicity to venues to collecting the fees to making the coffee (sooooo necessary!) to posting the pictures so we can all relive the experience. Thanks to you all.

Didn't know there were Swedish sweaters. Norwegian and Icelandic, yes, but not Swedish.
