Cécó Workshop is involved in research on and popularization of folk dance and folk dance music of Voivodina. The initiative also actively encourages traditional dance in its earlier function as part of a local communitiy experience. The group was founded by Resócki Rolland. Members are young working people, secondary school and university students from the region who have taken part in local folk dance groups. They are supported by the Voivodina Hungarian Folkore Center and maintain contacts with the Ethnography and Cultural Anthropology Department at Szeged University and the Institute of Musicology of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. In February they organized a conference in Szabadka/ Subotica, Serbia focusing on methodology for folk dance research and archiving materials collected. "Cécó” is what spontaneous dance and music gatherings used to be called in the Tisza River Region. Report by Mikuska Judit.
