Skandia Folkdance Society invites you to Vinterdans, a special evening of music and dancing on Friday, Feb. 1 at the Cedar Valley Grange, 20526-52nd Ave. W. (between Mountlake Terrace and Lynnwood).

The event, which runs from 8-11 p.m., will open with Seattle Lilla Spelmanslag, a talented group of children ages 8 to 18 who share a passion for Nordic music.

Ben Teitelbaum, internationally acclaimed master of the Swedish nyckelharpa, will follow with music featuring this unusual string-and-keyed instrument. Teitelbaum’s talent earned him a Swedish scholarship for advanced musical study and the first-ever American degree in nyckelharpa performance. He now heads the Nordic Studies Department at the University of Colorado in Boulder.

Admission is $15 per person, and those who don’t know how to do this type of dancing are invited to learn. Organizers advise that you wear low-heeled shoes that turn easily.
