Háromszék Folk-Dance Ensemble
The Háromszék Dance Ensemble was founded in 1990 in Sfantu Gheorghe. The aim of the Ensemble is to collect, to preserve and to present the traditional folk music and dances from Transylvania through an original theatrical and dramatic language and form. These performances reveal the contemporary values of folklore and break down the audience’s prejudice about this
tradition seen as anachronistic. The Ensemble combines together traditional folk dance and music with modern dance-theatre elements and movements and discovered the great theatrical potentials in different regional rituals, traditions even local historical events.The Ensemble together with the Lajtha László Foundation organizes every year the Folk Dance and Music Festival
in Sfântu Gheorghe where professional collectors, authentic tradition keepers, musicians and participants come together, keeping our valuable traditions alive. The Ensemble and the Foundation also host the Folk Dance House event monthly.
