Part I: At the dance in Forrószeg. Excerpts from the memoires of Kocsis Rózsi (born Szék 1932/died 1999). Rózsi describes the dances she went to in her neighborhood of Szék as a girl. We hear about the customs around paying and feeding the musicians, how the dances were organized, the social rules for a girl’s behaviour at the dance, asking a girl to dance, how she was obliged to accept and when boys from another neighborhood in Szék came to the dance in their neighborhood. Selected from the 1997 publication, Erdélyi Gondolat Könyvkiadó, Székelyuvarhely/Odorheiu Secuiesc, Romania.
