Interview with Sikentáncz Szilveszter – president of the [Hungarian] Heritage Children’s Folkore Association. The Association was founded in 1990 to help secure and support the existence and organization of children’s and youth folk dance groups following the changes of government at the time. The Association started with 29 groups and 44 individual members. Today there are 150 groups and 80 individual members in Hungary and Hungarian communities outside of Hungary’s borders. This year some 60 events (festivals, competitions, etc) are planned in over 30 locations. The interview also discusses the importance, and ups and downs of building a community in a dance group.
