Folklore performances

There are not many countries beside Hungary, where the art of folk-dancing is at such high artistic level. There exists even a college for studying Hungarian folk dances.  
The Hungarian State Folk Ensemble, the Danube Folk Ensemble and Hungaria Folk Ensemble & Orchestra are three of the best professional Hungarian folk ensembles with the longest tradition (formed in 1951, 1957, and 1952), which have performances all around the country and abroad.  
All the three of the ensembles consist of 30 artists. Their choreographies are based on authentic dances. Some of them were collected in isolated villages and date back hundreds of years. Through the performed dances you can get a broad view of the music, dance and costume heritage of Hungary and the Hungarian inhabited areas.

The cultural traditions of Hungary are unique in the world. There exist only a handful of countries where folk music and dances are being practiced at such a high artistic level. In Hungary, these art forms are treated as an indispensable part of the country’s heritage. It’s easy to see that our culture’s foundations are based on music and movement, which are not only part of our country’s culture; they are part of our lives as well. One of the best ways of getting acquainted with the Hungarian experience is attending a traditional folk dance performance. With our company, you can receive this experience from first hand, from the best and most famous performers in the country. The Hungarian State Folk Ensemble, the Danube Folk Ensemble and the Hungaria Folk Ensemble & Orchestra are the country’s most respected dance ensembles with the longest traditions, dating back more than six decades. The groups consist of 30 dancers, and about 20 folk musicians based on the performing groups. With these performances you will experience the most famous, and the lesser known Hungarian and Gypsy dances from all areas of the country. Through them, you can witness the Hungarian cultural heritage.

Every performance starts at 20:00 and consist of two 45 minute long parts with a 10 minute intermission in between.

Free date Gift Voucher

Give the gift of an unforgettable experience!

We give you the opportunity to surprise your loved ones with a wonderful experience by purchasing a free date ticket for them to use whenever they like.

It gets harder and harder to smile when we unwrap the umpteenth pair of socks or some other similarly unimaginative gift. Holidays, birthdays and anniversaries shouldn't be about hastily purchasing a predictable gift for our friends and family. In the past few decades studies have suggested that the joy one feels when receiving material presents, even if they are the long desired smart phone or a super expensive pair of designer shoes, doesn't last very long, especially when compared to experience gifts.

We offer you the opportunity to give the gift of our program that the recipient may enjoy at a time of his or her choosing within in a year. We request that ticket holders let us know a short time beforehand when we can expect them!
