Greetings from Norway!

Hello everyone!
Here is the presentation from Spetalen Skole,Norway, at last!
We have been watching all your contributions, and we are very happy to be part of this exciting project with all of you! So many wonderful dance traditions!
Spetalen School, is situated by the South East part of the Oslo fjord.
We have 308 students,divided on 14 classes, and 24 teachers all together.
The school has been involved in various national and international projects and networks,such as Comenius, ENIS and eTwinning, since our first Comenius project in 1995.
In Norway we also have old traditions when it comes to folk dance and folk music.
We have connected with our local folk dance group, "Raade Leikaring".
They will, in cooperation with our University college students, come to practice with our 5th and 6th graders.
We have chosen to show you one traditional Norwegian Songdance, called "Lasse går i ringen", and then we will pass on to a dance ,called "Rugen", an old folk dance from one of our counties,Vest-Agder.
We whis you all good luck with the competition, and hope you will enjoy the PhotoStory about Spetalen Skole and the surroundings.
