We - ‘Dansegruppen 12tur’ -
are a group of Danish folk dancers and musicians, who are fascinated
by Danish traditional dances from the period approx. 1750-1850.
There are hundreds of different
dances and tunes to choose from, and like many other dancers in
we like to become acquainted with as many dances as possible for our
“everyday use”. Our musicians will give the traditional music
their personal touch and sometimes even write new music.
“Dansegruppen 12tur” dancers
and musicians are all amateurs. For our shows, we select original
dances which we enjoy dancing and believe are worth watching. We add
a gentle touch of choreography.
We also do workshops.

For the shows we may wear our folk dance costumes. Danish folk dance
costumes are handmade copies of original clothing – farmers’ or
peasants’ Sunday clothes. They are all different – due to the
changes in fashion over time and the regional characteristics. In
connection with a show we may, if you wish, give a short
presentation with a description of the costumes.

Dansegruppen 12tur would be happy to
