Established in 1927, the Vasa Junior Dancers continue to this day as ambassadors of Swedish heritage through dance. Their goals are to preserve Swedish dance, traditions, and heritage; and to share Swedish culture with the community.

We are sponsored by the Vasa lodges Twin Cities Vasa Lodges, including: 137-RUNEBERG, 138-STENBOCK, 433-KRONAN, and 488-JOHN MORTON. Parents and dancers 14 years and older are encouraged, but not required, to join one of the lodges.

The Vasa Junior Folk Dancers is an independent group with leadership and teachers. We are currently led by Kristin Johnson and Marie Splittstoesser.
