Katharina Mayer lives Bavarian folk dancing and gets everyone on the dancefloor.
Bavarian dance culture
In recent years, Alpine dance culture of the 19th century has seen a joyful revival and dance teacher Katharina Mayer is right in the middle of this movement. Bavarian dances are an important part of the region’s identity and associated with unique events, such as the “Kocherlball” in Munich’s English Garden, a yearly huge open-air dancing event! The Bavarian music, songs, and dances have been handed down from generation to generation throughout the region and today, everyone can join in, for a unique Bavarian experience that transcends all language boundaries.
