TRANSCRIPT

  • The Bihari Jnos Folk Dance Ensemble

  • 2

  • The ensemble was founded by Kossuth Prize-winning choreogra-

    pher and ethnographer Ferenc Novk and little more than twenty

    of his friends in 1954.

    Now, more than two hundred children, youth, and adults pass on

    the spirit of this initial workshop, and the warmth of their second

    home will come down to following generations. From the very

    beginning of its existence, the Ensemble is seeking different ways

    of putting Hungarian folk dance on stage. In 1972, Bihari was the

    initiator of the first dancehouse (tnchz) in Budapest, where

    the world-famous Hungarian dancehouse movement started. (In

    2011, the tnchz method - the way in teaching traditional dancing

    was inscribed on the UNESCO List of Intangible Heritage of Urgent

    Safeguarding.)

    SHORT DESCRIPTION AND HISTORY

  • For us, heritage is not only a historical collection, but

    shall be handled as an active material and source of

    ever newer choreographies.

    The adult group has about 30 choreographies on

    repertoire, including authentic dances, contemporary

    folk dance, and dance theatre shows.

    Bihari has always worked as an open ensemble, hosting

    the most well-known Hungarian choreographers

    (Katalin Gyrgyfalvay, Joln Foltin, Kroly Szigeti, Sndor

    Tmr, Zsolt Juhsz, Zoltn Zsurfszky) in its rehearsal

    hall.

  • Folk dance teaching and a well-planned training of

    the rising generation started in the early 1990s. A

    school was formed in 1995 as a branch of another

    school and became independent in August 2000 as

    Bihari Jnos Art School with 160 children. Hungarian

    folk dance teaching starts at age of six and is done in

    ten classes and five groups.
