June Dutch Hop is a music and dance tradition of the Germans from Russia that settled in Western Nebraska, Southeast Wyoming, Northern Colorado and Western Kansas at the turn of the 20th Century. Today, every weekend dances are held at community centers, private homes, Octoberfests, and elsewhere. The band consists of an accordion, a hammer dulcimer, a trombone and a bass piano.
