Dance culture of Mátyusföld and the region between the Vág (Váh) Garam (Hron) rivers: the traditional dances done in this area of present day Southwestern Slovakia reflect the larger ethnic groups that inhabit the area: Hungarian, Slovak, German. The typical dance types found here include: girl’s circle dances, shepherd’s dances (with or without implements), verbunk , csárdás, social dances of the bourgeoisie (waltz, polka, fox, etc). This writing gives a brief introduction to the region, with call for further scientific research before the generations die out that danced between the two world wars.
