Dance Information

This strathspey, October In Rechberg, was written for the 40th anniversary of the Rechberg WE (Germany).

This was an annual SCD event for advanced dancers near Schwaebisch Gmuend until 2013. Now it's a biannual event under the new name "Autumn in Gamundia" in a new venue directly in Schwaebisch Gmuend.

Schwäbisch Gmünd is a town in the eastern part of the German state of Baden-Württemberg. With a population of around 60,000, the town is the second largest in the Ostalb district and the whole East Württemberg region after Aalen.

Schwäbisch Gmünd was a self-ruling free imperial city from the 13th century until its annexation to Württemberg in 1802.
