Kreuz & Square (DEU)

Kreuz & Square

Kreuz & Square (DEU)The East German folk dance movement was an unprecedented phenomenon. In 1980 the Leipzig-based Folkländer group decided to further develop their dance side. Its musicians brought in more structure, studied repertoire sources, developed a surer knowledge of rhythms, tempi and dance steps. Their dance splinter group Kreuz & Square’s folk dance evenings were received with undreamt of enthusiasm. They became the template for dance shindigs and a new breed of folk dance revival bands across the nation. The workshops and dance evenings at Rudolstadt celebrate Kreuz & Square and their achievements.
