László (Laci) Tihanyi will return for his third year as our part time children’s instructor. He is a native of Hungary and has resided in Oakland, California since September 2013. Since his arrival, László has been the Assistant Artistic Director and Principal Dancer of Eszterlanc Hungarian Folk Dance Ensemble. His background as a amateur Hungarian folk dancer and dance teacher has led the group to invite him from Hungary for leadership and teaching roles in the United States. László received his Bachelor of Science in Hungarian folk dancing and folk dance coaching from the Dance Academy Budapest, Hungary.”
We would like to introduce you to our new children’s program teacher, Krisztina Ihászy, who will be co-teaching with Laci Tihanyi. She graduated from the Karoly Esterhazy Teacher Training College in 1995 and has done extensive work with children of all ages. She loves traditional Hungarian arts and crafts and folk tales. She has organized arts and crafts programs for camps and courses in gymnastics, swimming, and learning skills (Silva method). In Sarasota Florida, Krisztina worked with preschoolers for the local Hungarian school and directs folk dance and song groups. We are very happy to have her at Ti Ti Tábor this summer.
