Taneční Mládež (Dancing Youth)
is Czech and Slovak Sokol Minnesota's children's folk dance group, organized in January of 1990 with 12 members.
Children ranged from 4 years old to 8th grade.
Our highlighted annual performance is at the Festival of Nations in May, as well as at many other community events during the year, including Czech and Slovak Day in the fall, and SOKOL Sibrinky dance in the winter.
Our teen dancers keep the dances alive in the years between childhood and adulthood.
They not only know all the children's dances, but they also perform some of the adult dances
with the adult dance group, St. Paul Czech and Slovak Folkdancers. www.tancuj.org!
Children and teens wear authentic costumes that represent many areas of the Czech or Slovak Republics.
Kroje are provided for our dancers.
Dance is taught by Louise Wessinger.
Louise, formerly an elementary school teacher, has taught aerobics, is a long-time SOKOL member,
and performs with the adult St. Paul Czech and Slovak Folkdancers. www.tancuj.org
Practice is usually held on two Saturday mornings each month at the historic C.S.P.S. (SOKOL) Hall
in St. Paul's West End
To accommodate performances, practice times and dates may vary.
Annual activity fee per child = $25.00. Free for members or relatives of SOKOL members.
