Schuhplattler


The Lederhose





The "Schuhplattler" folk dance group of Kaltern/Caldaro in a steet performance in the village of Neumarkt/Egna during the "Laubenfest 2014".








The Schuhplattler is a traditional folk dance popular in the Alpine regions of Bavaria, Austria and South Tyrol.

  3. You have to have nice legs to wear such short lederhosen. :)

  4. This is a nice series of "action" shots, Karl. Very colorful and looks like great fun. I think one would have to be strong in order to participate, though. And I like the shorts. Maybe I could buy a pair to wear on the golf course?

    Thanks very much for your comment on L&L Photography!

  10. This dancing is a lot more physical than other forms of dance, with those lifts.

    I think I would look great in lederhose. Not.
