You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of May 6, we are $2,380 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today to join dozens of other supporters in making this important overhaul possible!

Tanzlied

Language: German (Deutsch)

Nun wind um deine Stirne
den vollen Rosenkranz!
Nun schürz dich, blanke Dirne,
und komm mit mir zum Tanz!

Der Mond grüßt durch die Zweige,
die Linde schauert sacht;
da singt und klingt die Geige
hell jauchzend durch die Nacht.

Da springen wir den Reihen
in lustigtollem Schritt:
es hüpft vor Lust uns zweien
das Herz im Takte mit.

Dance Song

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

 Bind around your head
 the full crown of roses!
 Put on your apron, bare girl,
 and come with me to dance!
 
 The moon greets through the branches,
 The linden tree shivers lightly;
 the fiddle is sounding and singing
 brightly through the night.
 
 We dance the dance
 with exuberant steps:
 both our hearts jump
 joyfully to the beat.
