DANCE GROUP TOURS
Carpathian Tours also offer custom designed tours for dance groups
wishing to learn Hungarian dances from Hungary, Slovakia or
If your group already knows which dance they would like to learn we
can organise exclusive dance teaching from the best teachers of that
dance. Just tell us the standard of accommodation you require, and we
will organise a place for your group to stay as close as possible to
the village whose dance is to be taught. Teaching, rehearsal hall, live
or recorded music, travel details and restaurant recommendations or
meals will be provided. The timing and length of the teaching will be
discussed with each group.
Our organisation believes strongly in the value of learning about
the culture and traditions of the village whose style of dance you are
learning. The connection of dancers and musicians, the songs, customs
and community are an integral part of the dance itself. These elements
are what brings the dance and music to life and give it meaning.
So although a professional dance teacher will be your teacher for
the duration, dancers and musicians from the village itself will be
brought to the teaching hall if possible and the group will be taken to
the village to meet the locals, learn about its culture and party with
the local musicians & dancers. A dance is changed forever when you
visit the place and people it has come from!

tradition in every village. This is particularly so within Hungary
itself. So for certain dances, local musicians and dancers cannot be
guaranteed. This will be discussed when organising a tour for your
If you are not sure which dance you would like to learn, please
contact us and we can help to suggest a suitable dance for your group.
Educational materials will be provided, including written
information on the region, village dance and music history and culture.
A video of the dance taught made during the tour will be supplied.
Recordings of the music can be arranged.
