Symra is a very active folk dance group in Oslo, Norway. The group
consists about 120 members, of which roughly 80 participate actively. We
meet every week at our dance evenings, to practice our dances and to learn
new dances. We always have live music (hardanger fiddle) and an instructor
at our dance evenings.
