Alpenrose Schuhplattler Verein

Schuhplattling:      Nothing   is   more   recognized   throughout   the   world nor   more   representative   of   Bavaria   and   the   Austrian   Tyrol   than Schuhplattler dancing.  Schuhplattling,   which   literally   translates   to   shoe-slapping,      can   be traced   back   to   the   11th-14th   century.      It   is   considered   a   mimic   of   the male   Auerhahn   bird   who   courts   the   female   by   flapping   his   wings and   kicking   up   his   feet   around   a   circle.      The   woman   plays   her   part by   spinning,   as   a   way   to   challenge   the   man.      Indeed,   it   is   difficult for the man to catch the woman to waltz with him. The    Tracht    (formal    dress-wear)    worn    by    the    men    and    women dancers   has   remained   unchanged,   for   the   most   part,   for   over   200 years. The   Lancaster Alpenrose   Schuhplattler   Verein   performs   a   variety   of folk   dances   from   both   Germany   and Austria. Adults   and   children   of all   ages   participate   in   these   dances.   The   group   performs   at   our   2 annual     fest     fundraisers:     Sommerfest     (2nd     weekend     in     June), Oktoberfest     (3rd     weekend     in     September),     and     also     at     most scheduled club events.
