In 2010, the Alpenland Tänzer of New Britain, CT celebrated 50 memorable years of practicing, presenting and promoting authentic Alpine "Schuhplatteln" dancing. Walter Kober, our founder, started the Alpenland Tänzer in 1960 in order to perpetuate a part of the culture of his homeland. He wanted to enjoy and share with others the dancing he had performed competitively in his native Austria. One of those original 1960 charter dancers, Benno Kohlmann, has carried that desire and continues to dance with us still. From the beginning, our Verein’s (club’s) practices take place at the Austrian-Hungarian Singing Society Donau hall in New Britain.
