Toby Blomé & Fred Bialy

Toby Blomé and Fred Bialy have been active members in the Bay Area Scandinavian folk dance community since the 1980’s. They have attended dozens of dance workshops taught by native Swedish and Norwegian tradition bearers, while visiting Scandinavia. Toby began teaching Scandinavian dance in the 1990’s with Fred and other dance partners, including several times at Lark Camp. They teach Scandinavian dance workshops and host dance parties in El Cerrito, and have organized and hosted a new (2020) annual festival, SCANDOMANIA! When not dancing, they play nyckelharpa, the Swedish national folk instrument – which brings them as much joy as dancing.
