Folk Dance Troupe NYITNIKÉK

About

Established in 2003, the Folk Dance Troupe Nyitnikék works as part of the Prague Endre Ady Students’ Club  (AdyEndre Diákkör – AED) and the Association of Hungarians in the Czech Republic. It has about 20 steady members at present coming mostly from among Hungarian students from Slovakia and graduates settled in Prague. However, the history of the troupe goes as far back as 1975. The present troupe Nyitnikék is a continuator of the traditional folk dance troupe that existed within the Endre Ady Students’ Club almost continuously from the 1970s till 1996, when it ceased to exist due to lack of new members. Many members of the troupe have been pursuing folk dancing since their secondary-school years, being members of good Slovak troupes. Now they can continue their dancing at a more advanced level also here in Prague. The standard of the troupe is secured in cooperation with top choreographers and dancers of renowned dance troupes in Slovakia (e.g. Ifjú Szives, Szőttes) The troupe meets for regular rehearsals usually twice a week.

The reason for the existence of the troupe and the purpose of its activities are the same as those of its predecessor: to maintain and pass on the traditions of folk dance and music and their presentation and promotion among the Hungarians in Czechia, for as is generally known, the power of traditions has been waning recently as a result of revolutionary social changes. Former social rites are being reduced to family customs and the traditional culture is becoming an exotic world that is known only to specialists in ethnography. It is folk dance troupes that can help to present and maintain a part of the traditional world represented by folk dance and music.

Nyitnikék appears regularly at events organized by the Association of Hungarians in the Czech Republic (CsMMSz), the Prague-based Endre Ady Students’ Club and the Hungarian Cultural Centre in Prague (PMKK). The Nyitnikék troupe has become an important part of Hungarians’ cultural life in Czechia over the years.
