Bechyn Czech Folk Dancers
Our Bechyn Czech Folk Dance group was formed in 1994 and performs each year at the Czech Heritage Festival. Our dance group now includes second generation dancers! Members range in age from 3 years old thru adult (even grandparents!). We strive to perform authentic Czech/Slovak folk dances, and also have choreographed original folk dances. In 2013, we debuted our new kroj (folk dress) which is fashioned after kroj from the Valassko region, Moravia, Czech Republic.
Our weekly practices start in June. If you are interested in joining our dance group, please contact us on our contact page.
Mollie B and Ted Lange presented a fantastic live concert!
have fun... repeat!
