Dutch Hop Polka Dance flyer 2013

The River Boys, a Dutch Hop band from Nebraska and Colorado, will be playing for the final event of our 2013 meeting, a dance in the Saloon at the Vee Bar Ranch. Dutch Hop is a very regional tradition from the German-Russian communities in western Nebraska, northern Colorado, and southeast Wyoming. The event will start at 7 p.m. on Saturday, April 27, with dance instruction, and the band will play starting at 7:30. There will be a break with interviews of the performers about the history of the tradition, and then the fun will continue until 10 p.m. The dance is free and open to the public, and is supported with funding from WESTAF.
