    Event description

    Join Kengugró & The Transylvaniacs for a night of stomping, swirling and clapping!

    Táncház led by Kristóf Sebestyén from Hungary and members of Kengugró. Live music by The Transylvaniacs.

    The band strikes up, the dance leader calls everyone up into a big circle and off we go. Before you know it, you will be spinning, slapping and swirling with wild abandon. For those who are just beginning or dancers not familiar with this style, the dances will be taught step by step to live music by The Transylvaniacs. Those already familiar with the style can enjoy the live music and let their feet do the talking. Dances will be taught from many regions including Szatmár, Bonchida, Kalotaszeg and Palatka.

    The Polish Club, Ashfield
    We are very excited to be holding our first táncház at the newly-renovated Polish Club, Ashfield. We are keen to develop a relationship with the Polish community and warmly welcome the Syrenka dancers to join in the party. ALL WELCOME!!

    The club is centrally located on the main street of Ashfield close to buses and station. Pedestrian access only possible from 182 Liverpool Road.

    Parking: 73-75 Norton Street. Continue down the ramp and turn right at the first level. You can easily enter the club from the carpark using the lift. Alternatively, there is always plenty of street parking in the surrounding area with pedestrian access to the club via the front entrance on 182 Liverpool Road.

    Arrive early (6-6:30) to eat dinner at Sto Lat, the Polish club's restaurant, which features lángos, pierogi and many other delicacies on its menu. We highly recommend booking a table directly with the restaurant to ensure a spot.

    Kengugró embodies the vibrant colours and energy of the twirling, whirling, jumping, slapping dance culture from the Carpathian Basin. Since its inception in 1987, Kengugró accompanied by The Transylvaniacs have presented a rich smorgasbord of dance, music and song from across this region. Their repertoire draws primarily on the traditions of Hungary, Slovakia and Transylvania which they have shared with audiences across Australia, Hungary and Europe performing with some of the leading dancers and musicians in the genre. 

    They hold regular táncház (dance-house) with The Transylvaniacs around Sydney where we encourage everybody to join in the fun. The táncház method of teaching traditional dancing was inscribed on UNESCO's List of Intangible Heritage of Urgent Safeguarding in November 2011.

    All funds from this event will go directly to organising the Kengugró Kalotaszegi Tábor 2025. More details here:
