Yiddish culture has always been heavily influenced by German culture – from its origins in the Rhineland to its heyday in Eastern Europe and the New World. Several musicians have already shown that Bavarian and Klezmer music have a lot in common and harmonize perfectly.

So what could be more natural than to dare a dance evening with the Quartet Mesinke from Krumbach and the Bavarian Band Chapel Rheingold with their folk music expert and violinist Evi Heigl? The dance masters of both bands briefly present the respective dance styles; and then “Mazel Tov” – “good luck”, if the polka hits the Freylach and the Bulgar the Landler!

Most dances are line dances, some are couple dances. Knowledge of the Klezmer dance steps is not requested, but the joy of music is. And if you do not want to dance, just enjoy the thrilling music.

Dancers from 9 to 99 years are welcome!
