Cultural Activities

One of the main goals of the German-American Social Club is to act as a hub of German culture in the Greater Miami Area.

Some of our many cultural activities include:
  • German language classes
  • the largest German language library in South Florida
  • folk dancing - Schuhplattler for children and adults and traditional folk dancing (Volkstanz)
  • movie nights featuring German movies

The Auerhahn Schuhplattlers

The Schuhplattler is a Bavarian folk dance. Many towns in Bavaria have different styles of schuhplattling, which consists of a series of slaps to the thighs and feet, which are done to the beat of the music.
