Performance at the Edmund Fitzgerald Hall Stage.

The Kisarit Finnish-American Folkdancers will perform Finnish folk dances like Finnish waltz, jenkka(schottish), humppa, and mazurka.  

Kisarit Finnish-American Folk Dancers were organized in 1972 to preserve and present Finnish folk music and dance. Based in the Twin Cities of Minnesota, the volunteer members of the group practice weekly with choreographed dances and traditional folk dances from all parts of Finland. Past members of the group have trained and studied with well-known Finnish and Scandinavian folk dance instructors, enabling Kisarit to teach folk dances from every region of Finland as well as other Scandinavian countries. The Kisarit dancers have delighted audiences throughout the United States, Canada and Finland with their performances. In 2022, the Kisarit Finnish-American FolkDancers celebrated 50 years of continuing to bring Finnish dance performances, music and culture for others to enjoy and experience
