Dance 1 -- Room 226

Schuhplattling is an extremely energetic German folkdance style. You've probably seen men in lederhosen doing this at Oktoberfest. We will start with the very basics, so no previous experience is required. The workshop is suitable for anyone who can jump up and down and reach their knees.

Remington Stone danced for several years with the Golden Gate Bavarian Club, performing Bavarian folkdances at Oktoberfests, Maifests, and similar events throughout the Bay Area. Remington is also an accomplished Victorian and vintage ballroom dancer, performing at the annual Dickens Christmas Fair, with the Vintage Invaders, and occasionally with PEERS. He is justly celebrated as a strong lead who can get almost anyone up and dancing!
