The newest group of Nordic Dancers will debut their first performance Friday, May 17, at Vesterheim’s Syttende Mai celebration.

These 28 third graders were selected last fall after an audition process. They began practice in January and have learned over 10 dances.

These dancers are under the direction of Al and Anita Weis, Amanda Huinker, Marcie Dodd, and Ann Grimstad.
