The Lindsborg Swedish Folk Dancers (LSFD), established in 1963, is a group of high school dancers and musicians dedicated to promoting the study and appreciation of traditional Swedish folk dance and music. Through performances at local Swedish festivals and celebrations, social and public meetings, school cultural education events, and on educational tours nationally and internationally, they seek to preserve their community’s Swedish heritage, and encourage the continued recognition and observation of Swedish customs and folklore. In addition to performances, students hold Swedish bake sales, give educational travelogue reports to area organizations, and share creative Swedish meals.
The mission of the Lindsborg Swedish Folk Dancers is to:
• Promote the study and appreciation of traditional Swedish folk dances and music.
• Preserve Swedish heritage and encourage the continued recognition and observation of Swedish customs and folklore.
• Provide community service to the people of Lindsborg, Kansas and the Smoky Valley.
