Schlitz: Schlitzerländer Trachten- und Volkstanzkreis

Logo Schlitzerländer Trachten- und VolkstanzkreisThe aim of the Schlitzerländer Trachten- und Volkstanzkreis is to preserve the tradition of our native country. The main foci of our work are on folk dance, the preservation of our dialect, singing folk songs and last but not least the preservation of the national regional costumes.

The Schlitzerländer TVK has around 140 active members that make up two children's groups, two youth groups, an adult group and a senior group. Furthermore there is a theater group and well as a choir.
Our musicians provide rhythm and music, and support us with several accordions and guitars, as well as a "Teufelsgeige" ("devil's fiddle") and a double bass.

We dance original Schlitzerländer fair dances, as well as dances from all over Germany, such as Quadrille dances, round dances and line dances. We can perform more than 40 different dances, including a large variety of steps and formations that can be combined to programs of different length.

Our first international meeting already took place in 1957. Since then we visited countless festivals across Europe and on other continents. Foreign travel to Israel, Egypt, the USA, Russia, Puerto Rico, China or Taiwan have been highlights of our club life.
