Claudia Lüthi

... manages her own hairdresser salon in Hemberg, Toggenburg. She is a charismatic, very congenial young woman with a mind of her own and an independent lifestyle who loves to dance the Bödälä. She is a Bödälä fan of the young generation and, as a woman, dances audaciously in what is considered a man’s realm. She was the first woman in the area to take up this dance. She learned to dance the Bödälä from an ex-boyfriend who brought the dance from Central Switzerland. It was he who encouraged her to try this dance that is usually reserved for men.

Laughingly, she tells how more and more women are beginning to dance the Bödälä now that there is the Bödälä tournament in Toggenburg. She goes out dancing because of the music; she likes this down-to-earth folk music. It is lots of fun and really energizes her. She loves to dance to it – and preferably the Bödälä. Her partner, too, should love folk music and enjoy dancing. She would like to preserve the tradition and pass it along to her children. Claudia Lüthi is one of the co-organizers of the Bödälä competition in Toggenburg.
