Project Report – Csoóri Sándor Programme 2022


                                  CSOÓRI SÁNDOR PROGRAMME 2022





On behalf of the Ministry of Culture and Innovation, within the Sándor Csoóri Program, the Bethlen Gábor Foundation had a winning project, the aim of which is to support genres of popular culture.

Our foundation received a grant worth HUF 1,000,000, which was used to manage the popular dance group Fügevirág. This sum was previously used for the instructor’s tax pay, for the extension of the wardrobe of the popular clothes and for the realization of a promotional film.

In the 2022/23 school year, the Fügevirág Folk Dance Group had many new members, as well as a married couple, Bence Tóth and Boglárka Tóth-Bóna, joined the group as folk dance instructors thanks to the Petőfi Program. The folk dance group learned the dance steps and different choreographies from the team leader, Szilagyi Robert and from the beneficiaries of the Petőfi Program, Bence and Bogi.

During the school year, weekly dance rehearsals took place, where they learned the choreography of the shows, as they had several shows, at the local, county level and even across the border.
