Timár Sándor:" Mesti"
Honoring master Hungarian folk dance choreographer, teacher, dance ethnographer, folk dancer, one of the founders of the dance house movement: Timár Sándor on his 90th birthday.
"Mesti" is one of Timár Sándor’s nicknames - it is a shortened version of "mester” or master, in this case dance master.
The collection of short statements here expresses respect and praise for Timár Sándor’s work, person and influence. Some of the pieces are from Timár’s contemporaries and colleagues, some are from his students, most of whom are professionals in the world of Hungarian folk dance or music today.
Timár Sándor was born in 1930 in Szolnok, Hungary. From 1951 to 1955 he danced in the professional SZOT Dance Ensemble directed by Molnár István. He was director of the Bartók Béla Folk Dance Ensemble for 22 years starting in 1958. From 1950 he participated in and led folk dance research and collection work that became the inspiration and basis for his choreography work and method for teaching authentic folk dance. He and his method for teaching Hungarian folk dance played an integral role in formation of the dance house movement in the early 1970s. His life work has been dedicated to collecting, presenting and passing on authentic folk dance of the Hungarian language region.
Timár Sándor taught folk dance at the Hungarian Institute of Ballet and then served as department director there until 1990. Throughout his long career, he has been artistic director of the Jászság Folk Dance Ensemble, Bartók Folk Dance Ensemble and the Hungarian State Folk Dance Ensemble.
