The Mittelgruppe singing Christmas carols with the Kleine Kindergruppe

The Mittelgruppe (or middle group) is for children aged 8-12. This dance group builds on the work of the Kleine Kinder group by introducing more sophisticated dances with figures. The children are also introduced to the basic waltz and polka step.

They meet Mondays at the Donauschwaben Haus to practice dances, as well as poems and songs. The Children’s Group is an important part of our club, not only because of its beautiful performances, but also because it supplies the Youth Group with members and, in so doing, insures the future of our club.

If you have questions or would like to talk with someone about your child joining this group, please email Heidi Kurzhals at
