Welcome!

Ti Ti Tábor 2017

Thank You To Hungary Initiatives Foundation (HIF)!

Ti Ti Tábor Hungarian Folk Camp is the recipient of an Art and Cultural grant from the Hungary Initiatives Foundation. The project for 2017 is titled Community Connections and involves reaching out to arts organizations that could benefit from and appreciate what Ti Ti Tábor Hungarian Folk Camp has to offer. By forming new relationships with these organizations, the organizers not only broaden participation in camp, but increase the visibility of Hungarian folk culture as the partner organizations bring what they learned through camp to their respective communities. Partnerships with the following dance organizations include:

  • The Ethnic Dance Theatre, Minneapolis, MN (New Partnership!)
  • Brigham Young University’s International Dance Ensemble
  • Veselica dance company of St. Olaf College in Northfield Minnesota
  • The Radost Folk Ensemble of Seattle, Washington.

In addition, as part of the grant, Ti Ti Tábor Hungarian Folk Camp will also provide a choreography workshop and a costume set for the Sussefusse Ensemble of Portland, Oregon.

Also read below about the Ti Ti Tábor Hungarian Choral Workshop funded, in part,  by the HIF.
