Dance School 2.

We advise that child guidance is recommended for all adults - again!

Tánciskola 2 (Dance School 2) was created in 2006, as a sequel to Hungarian Dance School, the success of which inspired this show. Naturally, it focuses on traditional dance, but this time with another approach. While Tánciskola presented the Hungarian dance dialects and the basic dance types to the children, Tánciskola 2 takes a historical look at the music & dance of the Carpathian Mountains, with particular emphasis on its complete dance culture and each of its different ethnicities – Hungarian, Slovakian, Romanian and Gypsy. The show, just like Tánciskola, is matinee-like, it educates in an entertaining form. The show re-creates the familiar atmosphere of a classroom and a school lesson during which the children can see almost 20 different dances with music and many various costumes, all this presented with lots of humour. The viewers can gain an insight into the extraordinarily colourful and unique dance and music culture which has been formed over the past centuries by the different nationalities living together in the Carpathian Basin.

“You can rest assured that any Ifju Szivek performance will have within it the unbelievable spontaneity, the complete authenticity that their dancing conveys. From this the audience feels that they are not watching a 'production' but rather that they have fallen right into the middle of a celebration. In fact, there is not only dance going on on stage. There is much more. It’s totally energizing! The proof: our partners were forced, tired after work and ready to conk out, to escort us to the performance. After Tánciskola 2 they realised with surprise, that the tiredness had gone and they felt totally re-energized!”
