The Chicken Dance, was originally created in the 1950’s by Werner Thomas, a Swiss accordion player. This particular piece was arranged by Gary Dahl.
FUN FACT: The Chicken Dance was originally called “Der Ententanz”, or “The Duck Dance”. The name “The Chicken Dance” first came about because when it first came to the United States in 1981 during the Oktoberfest celebrations in Tulsa, Oklahoma, a German band wanted to demonstrate the dance in costume for a local TV station. However, a duck costume could not be located, so a chicken costume was used. Hence, chicken dance instead of duck dance.
Gary Dahl is widely known as a virtuoso accordionist as well as a composer, arranger, recording artist and music educator, with an extensive background in music theory, composition and harmony.
