Cultural & Schuhplattler Group

The current Cultural Group was formed in 1965 to foster the continuance of the traditional and folk dances of our ethnic heritage. Our group is an accomplished ensemble performing several styles of dance, including Danube Swabian Folk Dances, Viennese Waltzes, Hungarian Czardas, Schuhplattler, and Contemporary Dances. Our Cultural Group consists of adults and children of all ages.
