Founded in 1961, SG Edelweiß-St. Paul is a Bavarian Dance group, comprised of many multi-generational families. Dressed in traditional Bavarian outfits, this award winning group will perform dances from throughout Germany and Austria. Their repertoire consists of the Schuhplattler, Figurentanz and Laendler, typical dances seen throughout Southern Germany and Austria.
