The CSŰRDÖNGÖLŐ FOLK DANCE ENSEMBLE is rooted in the NY-NJ Hungarian American community, primarily in New Brunswick a hotbed, as they call it, for Hungarian-Americans. Primarily made of sons and daughters of emmigrated Hungarians, Csurdöngölo has evolved into one of America’s leading ethnic dance ensembles. The group’s name comes from Hungarian for barn stomper and the custom which called upon villagers to stamp down the earthen floor of a newly built barn. What better way to have some fun while working as a community. Don’t stomp on it. Dance on it! The energetic style of that stomping is symbolic of the vigor with which these artists carry on the joyful celebrations of their heritage.
