United and Loyal We Stand Together, The Men and Women of Enzian

Original Enzian is one of the oldest traditional German folk dancing groups in North America.

Our goal is to promote and preserve the Bavarian tradition of Schuhplattler dance and music.

We hold two major events each year open to the public, the Long Island Bavarian Heritage Festival and the Bauernball. We also perform at many other venues throughout the year.

If you would like to see us at one of these events take a look at our calendar or if you are interested in us performing at one of your events, you can contact us here.
