BERLIN: More than 100 years ago the inhabitants of Berlin
met their guests at the left calf of the monument
girl Berolina on Alexanderplatz, in the heart of the
city. "Let's meet there and go and shake a leg" - every
amusement started at this famous landmark.
The gramophone or the accordeon played in the
courtyard of the tenement block, and everybody
joined the rhythm of a popular polka.
During the roaring 1920ies afro-american
rhythms fired the audience, every month a new
exotic step became popular in Berlin's ballrooms.
Berolina-linke Wade takes you back to Berlin at the
turn of the century and to the Charleston era and
invites you to shake your legs.
In each November and December our show
Dancing in the Snow Flurry performs traditional
Christmas songs and winter dances from around
1900 till the Swinging Forties.
