Hungarian Folk Dance
Save the Date and please join us for an in-person program on Hungarian Folk Dance,

Our presenter will be László Tihanyi, professional Hungarian folk dancer and instructor.
His presentation will describe some of the extensive research done on Hungarian folk dance; the
various genres of Hungarian folk dance; the role of the “táncház” movement; and some live
presentation of dances and interactive dancing. This promises to be informative and fun!

ensembles in Hungary. László came to the United States at the invitation of the Eszterlánc
