During the week, children ages 3-12 will have the opportunity to explore Hungarian folk culture . Morning and afternoon sessions will include folk dances, songs, games, drama, arts and crafts, and outdoor activities all centered around our cultural theme. At the end of the camp, the children will have an opportunity to present what they have learned and created. A family Táncház (dance party) geared towards children and parents will be held each evening before the regular Táncház.
László 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.”
Krisztina Ihászy will join Laci in leading our children’s program. More information coming soon!
