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.
