Nordic Lights  


We are a select group of artists from Nordic countries, residing in NYC. Our goal is to bring American - Scandinavians together through music and dance, and provide high level performances.


We are currently recruiting contemporary and classical dancers with the Scandinavian background.


Stay tuned for our future performances in 2016.
