Göteborgs National Dans Sällskap, GNDS

GNDS – was founded in 1915, and was one of the first Folk Dance Societies in Gothenburg. Today we are a Society with 120 members and we arrange dance evenings every Thursday in Gräfsnäsgården (Slottsskogen). The traditional dances are our main task but traditional handicraft is also an important part of our activities.

A lot of things have changed since 1915; but we see our mission to keep the traditions alive, to feel the joy in the music and dancing and to feel the satisfaction from creating something with our hands. At the same time our ambition is to develop the activities by new influences, for instance through exchanging of dance and music with other folk-dance associations in Europe. By showing our activities we also try to inspire others to join us and feel the joy in our society. As we see music and dancing as something that unites people, GNDS have a long tradition of participating in Folklore festivals and visiting other countries.

We use traditional costumes from different part of Sweden at performances and our experienced musician’s plays at traditional folk music instrument.
