Ifjú Szívek Hungarian Dance Ensemble celebrates the 50th anniversary since its formation with two gala performances in November 2005 of their new program of dances. This Hungarian dance ensemble, based in Pozsony (Bratislava, Slovakia) was semi professional until 2000 when they earned professional status. Their long standing existence is a true accomplishment given the obstacles posed over the years since Hungarians are considered a minority in Slovakia. Takács András congratulates the dancers, technicians, administrative staff, director Hégli Dusán and lead violin Koncz Gergely on the new program of traditional ’felvidéki’ material, that is; Hungarian, Slovak and Gypsy dances from Slovakia.
