All the

children had

a fun and


time at

fastelavn !

News from the Danish Folkdance Group ‘Heimdal” Inc.

After a well earned break through December and January the Danish Folkdancers met

again to start a whole new year of dancing in the Danish Club, happy and refreshed.

As always our dance year commenced with an Annual General Meeting and election of

office bearers. True to form we did all of that on Friday 1 February 2008 and with Lis and

Tom Larsen leading us we are now ready to conquer the dance floor yet again.

Slightly more structure has been brought to our dancing this year as Lis will attempt to

teach us new dances at the beginning of each of our Friday evenings and only after the

most important event, the coffee break, (sorry Lis), do we dance our most favourite and

older dances which we know by heart. New dances can sometimes equal brainteasers, but

we soldier on with Lis at the helm and will have much fun in the months to come.

Last year a group of our dancers went to New Zealand and participated in the biannual

Scandinavian Gathering in Christchurch. There is a Danish folkdance group in Auckland who

has visited us here in Brisbane and they met up with our dancers of course and much

dancing and dining was participated in as well as partaking in the organised festivities

during the Gathering.

In 2009 two trips are in the planning stages for our group, as ‘Nordlek’, the Scandinavian

Festival of Folkdancers is being held in Finland, and there is much interest amongst the

Group’s members to attend. In the summer of 2006 some of our dancers went to Sweden

and attended “Nordlek” there and had a fabulous time.

The other event coming up in 2009 and will create a lot of planning too, is the Biannual

Festival in New Zealand, this time held in Auckland, where interested folkdancers from our

Group will also attend.

We celebrated our 15 th year as a folkdance group last year in August and arranged a great

party to commemorate the occasion. We all love our folkdancing, but also the wonderful

social aspects of it.

It could probably also be proven scientifically that we lose weight doing Danish folkdancing,

it is certainly vigorous enough, but we will keep that to ourselves!

Cheers for now from the Danish Folkdancers.


Attention!!! Heimdal

If you are a excellent organizer, do you have a great

ideas for the future Heimdal then we would love you to be

apart of the committee. We would appreciate new faces

within the club organization.
