Gretchen Makinson will teach a beginner Norwegian folk dance called Klappdans at 5:45, no partners or prior dance experience needed! And a children's dance group will perform a set of Scandinavian dances for part of the after dinner program, and we will learn a bit about Eidsvoll and Constitution Day. We will be having a parade, so please bring your Norwegian flags to wave in celebration. Bunads are acceptable, as well as Norwegian sweaters (we hope it won’t be too hot for them!)
