For the Texas Tech German Dancers, it was traveling to Germany, cour- lesy of American Airlines. I The airline sponsored the oup in exchange for promo- ion in Germany of its new Oallas-Frankfurt flight. The German Dancers :lew to Germany in the sum- Tier of 1985, representing fexas by announcing the Texas Sesquicentennial. In ,1986. Texas will celebrate its 150th anniversary, i Randy Kirk, dance direc- or, said Germany and Texas lave much in common. " Ger- nans have a fascination with Texas. " " he said. The group )erformed in German cowboy blubs as well as in programs at yarious cities. Kirk said some jcrman citizens have even constructed scale models of western towns such as " ' Old Texas Town " in West Berlin and " Lubbock " near Co- logne. The dancers visited such cities as Frankfurt, West Ber- lin. Hamburg, Munich, Heidelberg, Cologne, Mainz and Salzburg. Austria. The German Dancers took in Germany in style; Mer- cedes Benz furnished three vehicles to the group. The trip to Germany was not completely a new experi- ence. In 1983. the German Dancers performed during a 5 ' 2-week goodwill tour in Ger- many. The group performed at festivals that celebrated the 300th anniversary of the first German settlement in the United States. A little closer to home, the German Dancers also traveled to Georgetown for Octoberfest and to New Braunfels in No- vember for Wurstfest. a German celebration. In early October, the group performed in the four South Texas cities of Brenham. Washington on the Brazos. Winedale and La Grange. At La Grange, the German Dancers stayed in a home that was con- sidered to be the former capi- tal of the Republic of Texas. Kirk said Wurstfest is one of the group " s favorite events. " It ' s amazing to see how pop- ular we are deep in UT terri- tory, " he said. " ... It ' s worth that alone to make the trip. You almost have to be there to understand the energy that goes on. " In addition to their perfor- mances across Texas, the danc- ers performed for Tech ' s Ac- tivity Day and University Day, for the Lubbock Cham- ber of Commerce Christmas party and for Senior Citizen ' s Day at the Panhandle-South Plains Fair. The group also sang German Christmas carols at the Hedwig Hill Haus during the Candlelight Tour at the Ranching Heritage Center at Tech. The Hedwig Hill Haus is a German log cabin. In January, the German Dancers performed at the President ' s Breakfast spon- sored by Angel Flight. As part of their regular activ- ities, the German Dancers give dancing demonstrations in the UC courtyard. " You don ' t have to speak German to be in the group, and no previ- ous dance experience is nec- essary, " said Kirk. " We only ask that you want to do it. You get out of it as much as you put into it. " — Camille Wheeler German Dancers perform a dance that depicts the seventh year of marriage. German Dancers — 165
