The Forrás Hungarian Folk Ensemble of Vancouver


Currently, the group’s 25 members practice weekly and are well versed in performing numerous choreographed and improvised dances in a spirit of authenticity (the word ‘Forrás’ in Hungarian suggests ‘source’).  Dances in their repertoire originated in Hungarian villages throughout Central Europe, and have spread to larger urban centers worldwide.

Whether performing at an organized festival, wedding or impromptu basement party, costumes in addition to live music by the Forrás Band create a fun, party atmosphere part of the ‘Hungarian Folkdance revival movement’.

The types of dance and music styles vary greatly depending on the region of origin and include: couples, men’s and women’s dances. The Forrás Ensemble employs leading professional musicians and instructors from North America and Hungary in order to maintain and improve their repertoire
