Festival performance, couples dance

Festival performance, couple's dance

I have to admit it, I love Hungarian folk music and dancing, which I used to do many years ago in San Francisco. Folk dancing in the States had a very particular and relatively small group of followers, so I couldn't believe it when I arrived in Hungary -- a country where everybody seems to love this kind of music and dance -- I don't think I've been to a festival or event where it isn't featured on the entertainment program. And it's not just kids who do it -- it's everybody, young and old. This is one thing that I will really miss about Hungary when we leave next summer.

I like the Hungarian dancers and music.(and also the Tokai , famous white wine)
The Hungarian music is similar to the Gypsy music, full of energy but the clothes of the dancer more lovely for me.
The skirt are very funny.

Nicely done. I do like to watch traditional dance, but my three left feet prefer to remain sitting down...
