Danube Folk Ensemble
Danube Folk Ensemble Budapest
back to overview

Founded in 1957, the Danube Folk Ensemble is one of the most popular professional groups in Hungary. The members of the ensemble are both excellent dancers and musicians. It consists of 30 dancers and a 7-member-folk orchestra playing authentic music.

The aim of the ensemble is to perform genuine dances with dynamism and style, and to create innovative dance-theatre pieces on these principles. In addition to establishing a distinctive style through the vision of their artistic director, Zsolt Juhász, and his choreographer, the ensemble regularly works together with noted guest choreographers.

Their work enhance the rich repertoire of the Danube Folk Ensemble. The Danube Folk Ensemble`s repertoire includes some gems of Hungarian folk dance tradition, while the Hungarian folk music is faithfully interpreted by its musicians.

Varied and broad, the repertoire provides for several full concerts which are unique. The ensemble gives over one hundred performances each year, including weekly shows at the Duna Palota and folklore and dance-theatre performances both in the theatres of Budapest and all over the country.

The Duna Folk Ensemble is consistently included in the events of the Ministry of the Interior and at celebrations of National Holidays. These performances take place at the Parliament building or the Buda Castle, and are usually shown live on national television.
