Volkstänzer - Folkdancers

The Peoria Volkstaenzer (folk dancers) play an important role in keeping German culture
alive in the Heart of Illinois through dance. The group is dedicated to learning traditional
folk dances from all regions of Germany as well as Austria, Switzerland and more.
Not only do the members enjoy learning new dances but performing for others at our fests
and at other events throughout the area.
The group is open to people of all ages and our members range in age from 7 - 70+ years of age.
Folk dancing practices take place on Sunday evenings.
For more information about learning folk dancing, joining one of our performing groups
or having us perform at your event,
contact Debbie Hedemann at 444-8489 or e-mail her at folkdancers@peoriagermans.net.
