The traditional Czech dance, "The Beseda," is performed by 238 dancers in Sokol Park, young and old alike. The dancers dress in their colorful Czech costumes which their relatives in the Czech Republic and Slovakia might dress in. The Beseda Dancers were honored in 1999 during the two day celebration.
Eight couples organized the first Beseda dancers in 1936. Members of the first group were Mr. and Mrs. K. L. Szymanski, Mr. and Mrs. Anton Cacek, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Soukup, and Mr. and Mrs. Jim Schuch.
