Alpine Dancers

The Alpine Dancers are a performing and teaching folk dance group specializing in couples and trio dances from Austria, Germany and Switzerland. They perform throughout the greater Washington, DC (USA) area.

The Alpine Dancers were formally established as a performing group in 1991. The Alpine Dancers specialize in teaching and performing intricate figure dances from Austria, Germany and Switzerland. The current repertoire of a wide varity of dances -- from graceful to highly energetic -- is listed at Dance Repertoire.
