hungarian dancersHungarian State Folk Ensemble
regarded as one of the greatest folkloric dance ensembles in the world

The Hungarian State Folk Ensemble, regarded as one of the greatest folkloric dance ensembles in the world, was established in 1951 to preserve the folk dances and traditional costumes of Hungary and hungarian-inhabited areas by putting them on stage before the public. During the more than six decades of its existence, the Ensemble has achieved its aim by revitalizing the culture of the Hungarian people. Their rich and colorful repertoire entitles the Ensemble to be regarded as one of the top touring groups in the world.

The Ensemble has performed in 44 countries across four continents.

The choreographies are all based on authentic dances, some of them collected in isolated villages with dance elements dating back hundreds of years. The members of the Folk Orchestra play authentic, traditional instruments and perform Hungarian folk music at its highest artistic level.

Michael Hingson and guide dog Roselle sit on a park bench.Michael Hingson
New York Times Bestselling Author
And 9/11 Hero

Blind since birth, Michael was East Atlantic Sales Manager for a tech company and worked on the 78th floor of World Trade Center Tower One. When the tower was hit by the first plan on 9/11, he and his guide dog Roselle led co-workers down over 1,400 steps to safety. Now, he owns his own firm and frequently consults and speaks about issues of team work, inclusion and technology. Michael holds a master’s degree in physics and has received many honors and awards – both before and after 9/11.

This is a Global Connections Yellow Ticket Event – check with professors to see if you can get extra credit for attending.
