A brief historic overview

The Norwegian Christmas Dance has it’s origin back to 1985 when Norway had many world and european champions in ballroom dancing; we celebrated the christimas time and joy of dancing and had a great time. The competition held life until 2001.

In 2012 a new initative by LSKdans club brought life back to the traditional Norwegian dance competition. The club and key resources started planning and finally applied for WDSF granting in 2014 – and since then the competition has grown steadily, and we are looking at record attendance in 2019 possibly contributed by also hosting the North European Championship.

North European Championship consists of 10 countries: Iceland, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Estonia, Lativa, Lithuania, Poland and Germany. 

In 2014 the competition was held at Thon Hotel Arena in Lillestrøm. The hometown of LSKdans club, and also supported by the municipality of Skedsmo.

After some years we needed to find a larger dancehall and currently we are in the municipaility of the Gardermoen where Oslo Airport is located.
