Final registration deadline (with late fee): Postmarked by July 2

Don’t miss the unique opportunity to get to know Norwegian Hardanger fiddle (hardingfele) music and dance traditions in depth! Sign up today for this year’s HFAA Workshop featuring the elegant and soulful music and dance of Telemark, July 16- 19 at Folklore Village out on the Wisconsin prairie! Telemark traditions are some of the best known of the Norwegian bygdedans traditions, both in Norway and abroad. As our guests from Norway this year we are thrilled to welcome hardingfele speledame Torunn Raftevold Rue in only her 2nd teaching appearance in the US, to have back with us the highly praised dance teacher Ranveig Bakka, and to have the chance to experience the delightful singing and dancing of Ole Arnfinn Hagen. Moreover, our experienced staff of North American hardingfele teachers, that includes Sarah Nagell, Loretta Kelley and Jennifer Elton Turbes, will present the traditions from other hardingfele areas of Norway. We also offer beginner mentoring for those who have not played hardingfele before. We are dedicated to nurturing beginners and providing challenges for the more advanced. We sincerely hope you will come and join us in an exciting yet relaxed environment that has been called “the warmest and most supportive in North America.”
