Csurdongolo Hungarian Folk Dance Ensemble of New Brunswick
Csűrdöngölő Folk Ensemble, Inc. (Csűrdöngölő) was established in 1998 and in 2008 became a non-profit, tax exempt organization dedicated to learning, preserving and promoting Hungarian culture. Over the years, Csűrdöngölő, whose members are first, second, and third generation Hungarian-Americans, has evolved into one of North America’s leading ethnic folk dance ensembles. The group performs at the local Hungarian national holiday commemorative programs, Hungarian-American social events such as charity balls, spring, harvest, and cultural festivals within NJ and NY communities. We organize children and youth folk programs, participate in cultural educational events at public schools, universities, museums and county festivals. The group presents an annual large scale performance showcasing Hungarian folklore. Members of Csűrdöngölő instruct the children’s folkdance group at the Hungarian-American Athletic Club (HAAC), as well as the adult beginners dance program in New Brunswick, NJ. Csűrdöngölő organizes numerous dance house events which are open to the public, providing an opportunity to learn Hungarian folk dance and music from various regions.
