Dancing Around: GTV Almrausch Stiftungsfest, by Emma Walter

We couldn’t have asked for nicer weather as we attended the GTV Almrausch 97. Stiftungsfest on Saturday, June 4th, it was a night filled with friendship and dancing. It’s events like this that allow us to pick up where we left off with our friends and fellow Trachtlers.

Almrausch kicked off the night with their grand march and the national anthems, followed by their Ehrentanz. The rest of the night was sprinkled with the Ehrentanz dances from many of the other visiting clubs, including our members. To close out the group dances for the evening, we all lined up to perform Gauplattler in the parking lot. Big thanks go out to the accordion players that evening!

It was so nice to be surrounded by Trachtler Freunde from G.T.V. Almrausch, SVV Original Enzian, GTV Edelweiss Reading PA, GTEV Schlierachtaler Stamm, Alt Washingtonia Schuhplattler Verein, Enzian Volkstanzgruppe, Edelweiss Passaic Schuhplattler Verein, Auerhahn Schuhplattler Verein, and Alpenrose Schuhplattler Verein-Lancaster.

Year after year we can always rely on G.T.V. Almrausch to host a wonderful event!

Looking forward to seeing our friends in the coming weeks at Gaufest in Atlantic City!
