The Las vegas Bavarian Dance Group is actually two groups in one: The Folk Dancers and the Schuhplattles; proper name of Die Lustigen Bayerischen Schuhplattler (The Funny Bavarian Shoe Slappers). Even though they really only have 2 seasons,,, they are very busy with dancing all over the city and across the country.
The Las Vegas Bavarians and Die Lustigen Bayerischen Schuhplattlers regularly perform at:
Bockbierfest at the Phoenix Club in Anaheim, CA
Henderson Heritage Days
Bavarian Evening at the German American Social Club of Nevada
El Jen Healthcare Center and Rehabilitation
Maifest at the German American Social Club of Nevada
Oktoberfest here in Las Vegas
They recently also performed at UNLV's Festival of Communities and at Silverado High School.
If you're interested in joining the Dance Group, please send an email web@GermanAmericanClubNV.com or just come to the club Thursday nights for practice. If you participate on a regular basis in dance practice and performances, a dancing outfit will be issued. There are no dues to be a member except for a commitment to participation. Fundraisers through the year go towards dancing costumes. Group President is Art Ruckle.
Below are some videos of the group in action.
