  • The History of Norwegian Dancers

    In the spring of 1953 Ms. Reek, a phy ed teacher for the district, selected six junior girls and told them to find six boys for a folk dance group that would go public for the upcoming Phy Ed demonstration. The group was accompanied by a single accordion player. And so the dancers began. Click here to read more.
