© Bartók Hungarian Dance Association - All rights reserved
We are a Calgary-based, non-profit organization, serving the community for over 30 years. We consist of children between the ages of 9 and 17, who share common goals: the love of dancing and keeping our Hungarian heritage alive.
Over the years, the group has instructed many talented dancers who have dedicated countless hours to practices, and have contributed their talent, time and energy to learn the dances and songs from different regions of Hungary. Thus, with their continued efforts, they are proud to have presented Hungarian dances to audiences on numerous occasions.
The group has also performed at different Senior Citizen's Centers, Hospitals, various Multicultural events and Community Centers.
Are you who we are looking for?
New member registration is currently underway. We are accepting members from age 6 – 16, no prior dance knowledge is required. If you have any upcoming events that you would like the group to perform at, contact us here.
The dancers have been invited to participate at such large-scale events as the 2005 Royal Visit, the 1997 Police and Fire Games, the 1988 Winter Olympics. At a number of Calgary Folks Arts Council events such as the Calgary Winter Festival, Calgary City Hall, the Santa Clause Parade, Canada Day Celebrations, Calgary Stampede Pre-Parade and at the Calgary Zoo for Zoolights.
We love the prospect of displaying our colorful costumes, culture, and the talents of our members.
The group has had educational trips to Hungary and Transylvania. Members learn new dances, acquire knowledge about the Hungarian culture and customs. In the summer of 2009, we were fortunate enough to once again be able to go to Europe and expand our knowledge and dance repertoire.
Bartók has had many opportunities over the years to travel. Once a year the group has the privilege to participate in the annual Western Canadian Hungarian Folk Festival. All the groups from across Western Canada have a chance to showcase their talents, join old friends and make new friends while participating in workshops and dance the night away at the evening tanchaz (dance house).
Practices are held on most Sundays, 2:30 - 5:30 pm
