Leikarring Folk Dance Group
Eidsvold Lodge's Leikarring was
originally formed in 1947 by members
Margarete and Andy Gilstein. Members wear the National Hardanger costume (bunad).
Traditionally, the group performs
four classifications of Norwegian folkdance: Bygdedans (village dance),
They have performed at local Lodge events, for schools and seniors' centers, the opening for the 1994 Commonwealth Games, and as far away as Stavanger, Norway in 2000 for the Nordleck Scandinavian Dance Festival.
The group meets at Norway House
on Tuesdays at 3:30 P.M.
The Eidsvold Walking Club meets on the first Saturday of each month at pre-determined locations around Greater Victoria for a scenic and leisurely walk of about 4-5 kms.
After the walk, the group gets together for lunch at a nearby restaurant or pub for an enjoyable meal together.
All Lodge members and guests are welcome! Times and locations can be found below
Throughout the year under the
direction of Marg Sorensen, we offer a number of activities to share
Norwegian and Scandinavian culture.
The Eidsvold Book Club meets at 11:00
on the second Tuesday of the month for discussions on
Nordic-related books of various genres. A schedule of upcoming
readings is published in the Runer and all are welcome to “drop
in” to talk about one book or to join for the whole series.
