ABOUT KRISTÓF SEBESTYÉN

Kristóf Sebestyén, from Győr, Hungary, has arrived in Australia on a nine month scholarship with the Kőrösi Csoma Sándor program to teach dance to Kengugró and at events around Sydney.

ABOUT KENGUGRÓ

Kengugró embodies the vibrant colours and energy of the twirling, whirling, jumping, slapping dance culture from the Carpathian Basin. Since its inception in 1987, Kengugró accompanied by The Transylvaniacs have presented a rich smorgasbord of dance, music and song from across this region. Their repertoire draws primarily on the traditions of Hungary, Slovakia and Transylvania which they have shared with audiences across Australia, Hungary and Europe.

They hold regular táncház (dance-house) with The Transylvaniacs around Sydney, encouraging everybody to join in the fun. The táncház method of teaching traditional dancing was inscribed on UNESCO’s List of Intangible Heritage of Urgent Safeguarding in November 2011.
