About the Folk Music and Dance Show
The folk dancers are the members of the traditional folk ensemble called Folkrhythms, who gained show experience in the former, nationally and internationally acclaimed Rajko Folk Ensemble,honing their fine sophisticated dancing and singing skills, showing the traditions of the Hungarian folks of various regions in Hungary. The folk dance ensemble on the river cruise is 4 – 6 dancers, plus there is a quartet playing the folk dance music for the group. The members of FolkRhythms will take you for a lovely dance with them at the end of the show (only if you want to learn dancing!)
The Folk Dance Show includes Hungarian traditional dances, like the spectacular the Women’s Bottle Balancing Dance (women balancing fragile wine bottles on their heads while dancing) or the Men’s Stick Dances (men acting out shepherd with their herding sticks, making tricky dance moves as if fighting off enemies).
The Folk Show is followed by an interactive and fun workshop where you will get an opportunity to learn a bit of Hungarian Folk Dances.
