“De Losser Böggelrieders en Daansers”
Almost 60 years a world-wide reputation
The folkloristic troupe “de Losser Böggelrieders en Daansers” is an esteemed visitor throughout the world. Anyone who has ever seen the group perform will understand why. Old Dutch traditions go hand in hand with top-class entertainment. Music and dance from the rural area of Twente, cheerful traditional costumes…. all combined with a unique bicycle show!
Dance, cycling and laughter
The colourful and merry company cycles into the spotlight far and wide. While the accordionists give sway to their cheerful tones and the Daansers (dancers) clack their clogs, the Rieders (cyclists) perform all sorts stunts on original bicycles. For example the Böggels: splendid authentic penny farthing bicycles from the 19th century. In total there are 20 böggels and also a bike without pedals, a carrier bicycle and a child’s tricycle.
Pleasure for young and old
Appearances by the “Losser Bögglerieders en Daansers” are a guarantee for the entertainment, pleasure and hearty laughter of the public. The group consists about 60 members; a senior group of 40 ladies and gentlemen and a 20 strong junior group. They form 16 dancing couples that can be accompanied by 3 accordionists. And wherever this company performs there is nothing but enthusiasm: amongst the group and amongst the public!
The Losser Böggelrieders en Daansers are proud of their own accommodation. Nearby the Saxon barn, where they also dance, they have a real forge. Here they repair and put down their bicycles. Those both barns are part of „Erve Kraesgenberg“.
By now we have enlivened many major events, such as:
- The engagement party and coronation of Queen Beatrix
- The opening of the A1 (Amsterdam-Berlin)
- The start of the Tour de France in the Netherlands
- Council festival in Hong Kong
- Performances throughout Europe and much further afield: including Moscow, Toronto (Canada),
Idaho (USA) etc.
- The opening of the world rowing championships in Amsterdam
The youth group of the Losser Böggelrieders en Daansers was grounded in 1990 by some enthusiastic young people. The members have an age between 15 and 25 years old. The Böggelrieders are proud of their active youth.
For example in Paderborn (FRG), Schwalenberg (FRG), Salzgitter(FRG), Hamburg(FRG) , Nals(I), Sweden and Switzerland the public remembers a great performance with music, dance and of course the bicycles.
De Losser Böggelrieders & Daansers: we bring our culture all over the world!
