Folk Dance and Music Meeting

The Folk Dance and Music Meetingfrom Sepsiszent­györgy are rep­res­ent­ing one of the last gar­ris­ons of the Transylvanian folk cul­ture. Their role is two­fold: on one side, they offer a pos­sib­il­ity for gath­er­ing a big amount of ines­tim­able folk art mater­ial for both ama­teurs and pro­fes­sion­als and they record and keep alive the passing on of the folk dances and music among dif­fer­ent gen­er­a­tions, on the other. They cre­ate a meet­ing oppor­tun­ity among pro­fes­sion­als, inform­ants and reg­u­lar people, play­ing the role of a folk art ambas­sador. With the pro­grams offered they acquaint our tra­di­tional folk cul­ture and treas­ures with the cit­izens of our town and with our guests, as well. The meet­ings, through their pro­grams, opened for every­body, are first of all addressed to the cit­izens of the town, but they also offer an oppor­tun­ity for cre­at­ing con­nec­tions and friend­ships with the sev­eral guests invited.

The pro­grams offered for chil­dren are rep­res­ent­ing an edu­ca­tional oppor­tun­ity. The chil­dren can learn about our cul­ture and folk art not in a over­bur­den­ing way, but can get acquain­ted with the mater­ial and spir­itual val­ues of our folk cul­ture in a way sim­ilar to play­ing games.
