What is svikt?

Svikt is a concept from Norwegian and Swedish dancing that refers to the up and down movement during the dance. It is generated by bending the knees and ankles. The ups and downs in the dance are reflected in the beats in the music, and provide emphasis that is very central to the way the dance feels.

This blog is called Sonia Svikt because svikt is such a central concept in Scandinavian dance and the music. Also, it refers to ups and downs and the blog will very likely discuss the ups and downs of this year of intensive study.

You could also interpret it as Sonia’s vikt. Vikt means weight or even gravitas. I am hoping to weigh in with my thoughts and experiences.
