Kinder Group


All are welcome! No prior knowledge of dancing is required; just a desire to have fun, exercise, dance, and meet friends.

Our Kindergruppe consists of children ages 5 to 13. From there, they move up to our Junior group, ages 14 to 16.  We meet to rehearse on most Fridays of the month between September and June at the American Legion Hall, 1 Legion Place, Hawthorne, NJ.
Through the blending of personalities and age groups, our children enjoy spending time together.  They can be very enthusiastic about learning new dances, playing cards (Schafkopf), marching in the Steuben Day Parade in NYC, attending picnics and other social events.  They have lots of fun while keeping up with their cultural traditions. 

Every year they look forward to attending the Mid-Atlantic Kinderfest where they get to see friends they’ve made from other dance clubs in the area.  This event rotates throughout the states of New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, New York and Connecticut.  It is a day long festival filled with music, games, and dance performances from all the children’s groups in the various German dance clubs.
Through the years, we’ve even had some of our Kindergruppe members participate in dance competitions, both locally and nationally. 

As with most children these days, our kids are very busy. In addition to their school, church and scouting activities, our Kindergruppe and Junior members can be available to perform at your next event.  Consider how delighted your audience would be to watch children wearing authentic costumes, such as lederhosen and dirndls while dancing traditional German folk dances at your Oktoberfest, restaurant, banquet, school, nursing home, club or organization. 

If your child would be interested in joining our dance group, or you would like more information about hiring us for your next event, please email
