As much as our team loves to dress up in costume and dance in front of the camera, for our new German Polka video we knew we had to hire the real deal. At first the task was a bit daunting. How would we find genuine German Polka dancers here in Los Angeles? Luckily after just a few hours of Google searching and networking, we found our solution: The Gypsy Folk Ensemble!
This Los Angeles-based group has been performing traditional ethnic folk dances for the last 33 years. We were so excited to work with them and experience firsthand the traditional folk dance, music and clothing of Germany.
Here are Steve, Christina, Stepan, Julie and David in their German threads – ready for a day of dancing and stein-raising in our studio:
Now it’s your turn to join in on the fun!
