Hungarian lord of the dance

Most people have heard of Riverdance and Lord of the Dance with the very talented Irish dancer Micheal Flatley. These shows were incredible successes worldwide in the last two decades. They brought traditional Irish folk dancing with a modern twist to the whole world. Like many European cultures, Hungarians also have beautiful folk dancing. These dancing traditions are still kept alive by various dance schools and groups that are in Hungary. The video above is from the Hungarian State Folk Ensemble. It features Galát Péter, who does a very nice solo dance.
