D’Fröhliche Schuhplattler was formed in 1976 for the purpose of upholding the traditions of Bavarian culture through Schuhplattler (dancing), music, and authentic Bavarian clothing (tracht).
The club has performed locally as well as across the United States. We have been featured at many local festivals, including St. Charles Oktoberfest, and at dances we host in the fall. (Click here to download our latest dance flyer.)
You don’t have to be German or have dancing experience to be a member. We teach people of all ages dances that have been handed down from one generation to the next. We also assist in providing outfits (“tracht”) to people interested in becoming members.
We hold practice, usually once or twice a month, at Laclede Groves, 723 S. Laclede Station Rd. Non-members are always welcome. Please contact us to confirm practice times.
