  • Biography Enzian Schuhplattler is dedicated to the promotion of Bavarian folk dancing, culture, and costumes. The club was founded in 1965 by German and Austrian immigrants. We perform regional dances from Bavaria (Germany) and Tirol (Austria). "Schuhplattler" is a centuries-old Bavarian and Tirolean folk dance in which the men demonstrate their vigor in a raucous but precise "shoe-slapping" rhythm to alpine folk music and dance flirtatious figures with the women. We are a member of the "Gauverband Nordamerika," an international federation of clubs dedicated to the preservation of Bavarian and Tirolean folk dancing, costumes, customs, and culture, and to establishing mutual fellowship.
