The largest number of hungarians arrived in this area in 1956-57, just after the Hungarian Revolution was crushed by oppression. In 1962 some of thr dedicated people thought to gather this relatively large number of people, forming aClub to maintain and preserve the national heritage, to keep the language and culture alive. The Club is now the main gathering place to the area Hungarians. Dances are held each month, and language classes were held for the children, during the winter months. A dance group was formed in 1970 and the youngsters have participated in Multicultural events in all the three cities
Bokréta always tries to mirror folklore as authentically as a stage presentation will allow. For example, because the essence of Hungarian folkdance is improvisation, the choreographies seldom present uniform, regimented movement. This is a multicultural group: though the majority of our dancers come from Montréal's Hungarian community, a significant portion, in fact, some of our most reliable members are non-Hungarian, mainly Québecoise.

The group presents Eastern European and Balkan music to San Francisco Bay Area audiences ranging from restaurant patrons to folk dancers. The traditional forms of the music are preserved, and at the same time given new life with the arrangements and interpretation. This isn't "world music", some mish-mosh poured out of a blender. A Danubius performance combines hard-driving Southern Romanian tunes, Hungarian Gypsy restaurant favorites, Bulgarian dances and Macedonian melodies, juxtaposed to make a tapestry of sound while preserving the character of each distinct musical style.
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.

The institute operates in Brussels, in the “heart” of Europe, and thus the activities are focussed primarily on Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg.

At the same time, the Institute also intends to cater to the interests of those who work in the multi-cultural environment of the European institutions.

The American Kodály Institute, founded in 2000 by Amy Branum Huggins and Betty Bertaux, is a teacher training organization that offers a three-summer program for music educators, leading to Kodály certification. AKI was formed in response to requests from music educators in Maryland and surrounding states for a Kodály certification program located in a geographic area convenient to them, and to provide a pool of music educators to fill the growing demand for Kodály trained master teachers. AKI's highly successful program attracts graduate students from across the United States and will soon open its doors to international students. Originally established as a division of the Children's Chorus of Maryland, AKI is now an independent non-profit corporation.
Colourstrings was the first to offer music education from a very young age in the UK and is the only approach that can be used all the way up to conservatoire level.

It has been training teachers in this country for nearly 20 years, and has educated thousands of children. The charity also runs projects in private and state schools throughout the UK and Ireland and provides INSET training.
