DC Karneval Dancers
The DC Karneval Dancers were founded in 2007 to perform at Washington-area Fasching and Karneval (Mardi Gras) balls. Made up of dancers primarily from the Washington Saengerbund, the Viennese Ball Opening Cotillion, and the Alpine Dancers, trained (until 2017) by Herbert and Carol Traxler, the troupe performed at the Koelner Karneval at the German Embassy (or Goethe Institut) sponsored by ThingsToDoDC.com (2007, 2008, 2009, 2014) and for the Washington Saengerbund Faschingsball (2007, 2008, 2010, 2015). Beginning in 2017, the DC Karneval Dancers may be contacted at www.saengerbund.org (The Washington Saengerbund).

The dances for their first season (2007) included "Viva Colonia" and "Ich wuerd' meine Fehler ja eingesteh'n." For their second season (2008) the dances included "Sansi Bar," "Dat Es Ne Joode Lade He," and "Viva Colonia (Da Simmer Dabei)." For their third season (2009) the dances included "Pizza Wundaba" and "Viva Colonia (Da Simmer Dabei)." For a recent season (2014) the dances included "Pizza Wundaba" and "Viva Colonia (Da Simmer Dabei)."

The DC Karneval Dancers may be contacted via www.saengerbund.org (The Washington Saengerbund).
