Arnhild Brennesvik &
Arnhild and Eivind are both accomplished dancers and instructors. Arnhild was brought up in the tradition and involved in teaching Telemark and Numedal dances to young and old since she was a teenager.
Arnhild and Eivind have been dance partners for many years and are well known to audiences in the US. In 2007 they won the Landskappleik, a national competition held yearly in Norway. That same year Eivind won Landskappleik and received the "Konge Pokal" (King's Cup) for his "Laus Dans," as the acrobatic Halling dance is referred to in Norway. In 2008 they were repeat winners at Landskappleik for their Numedalsgangar. They consistently place near the top of the competition, and placed 2nd at this year's event.
We are very excited that they can both join us for the 20th anniversary of our event.
