Hungary

The group is called “Szeged Folk Ensemble” from the city of Szeged in southern Hungary. It was founded in 1955 and has 33 members. Children are 12 to 14 years old and begin to learn to dance at the age of 6. Their repertoire is that of authentic Hungary but also a little bit of the Carpathians and Transylvania. They have participated in festivals but never in France.
