What an authentic treat we had for our Oktoberfest. Husband and wife team Rob & Dee Anne Gunneman entertained our Residents and staff with folk dancing common in Bavaria and surrounding reigns. For several of the dances, Dee Anne calmly danced in waltz like fashion while Rob danced vigorously about her swinging his arms and slapping his thighs and the soles of his feet. It was quite a rhythmic experience as was another piece Dee Ann performed with wooden spoons. We thank Tiffany Gunneman, our Dietary Supervisor, for inviting her uncle Rob and Dee Anne to our Home. They are part of the Die Gemutlichen Schuhplattler, professional dancers who preserve the cultural heritage of Bavaria, Austria and Tyrol through traditional music, folk dance and attire.
