Grüß Gott und Herzlich Willkommen! - Welcome!
We, the G.T.E.V. D’Lustigen Isartaler (Gebirgs Trachten Erhaltungs Verein) , the region's premiere authentic Alpine cultural group, are a non-profit organization (club) created to promote, educate and foster among its members a genuine love for Bavarian & Austrian alpine traditions, customs, folk dancing, singing and camaraderie, and to uphold and display original authentic Bavarian/Austrian Tracht (regional clothing); and to support other German & Austrian organizations in their effort to do the same. We have been an active club in Pittsburgh since 1972, which began at Saint Anthony’s (German) Catholic Church in Millvale, North Hills, and officially incorporating in 1975. Now, over 40 years later, we have members from all over Pittsburgh and the tri-state area. Our practice locale is St. Aloysius Church, on Mt. Troy Road in Reserve Township.
To arrange for us to perform authentic and traditional Bavarian & Austrian dances at your upcoming event, please contact our Vorstand (pres.), Mr. Béla Pater at BelaPater@aol.com we work with several German bands, so Béla can hook your event up completely with music and a show.

There's nothing like Bavarian dancing as an excellent way to exercise! We do very difficult dances, like the Schuhplattler dance and intricate figure dances, called a Ländler, through some more easier dances, like the Stern Polka and occupational dances, like the Mühlradl (Miller's wheel).
Tanz Prob (dance rehearsals) are usually twice a month on Sunday afternoon and some Friday evenings.
Currently, our practices are at St. Aloysius Church, Mt. Troy in the North Hills or at Holy Spirit Parish, Millvale.
Chor Prob (chorus rehearsals) are just about once a month and follow either a Tanz Prob or have a seperate meeting time.
Tanz Prob und Chor Prob schedule is listed in our bi-monthly Zeitung (club newsletter) which our members receive and on this website under REHEARSALS/COMING EVENTS. Just click on the link at the top of this page!
