Juergen Friese of D’Miesbacher Oimtaler Denver taught a workshop at the Mittelwest Bezirksheimatfest in Omaha in 2014. He taught us 8 different dances with varying levels of difficulty. The rhythm patterns can be tricky to figure out but therein lies the fun! The handout that Juergen prepared has a history of the dance, how the dance is performed, lyrics to the songs, pattern of the music, and musical notes. There are also website links to many of the songs so that you can hear them or see them danced.

On behalf of the Gemütlichen Enzianer, we would like to extend an invitation to join us at our Fahnen-Segnung and Bauernball (Flag Rededication Celebration) on April 18, 2015. Our Club’s flag is an important symbol of our heritage and Trachten tradition and as such, the refurbishment and rededication of our flag is an important milestone in our club’s history.
