CIESZYN – Szot Madziar 2000

Created in 2000 – Located on the border with the Czech Republic, in the south of Poland, the town of Cieszyn is directly on the trade route known as the “Amber road” and has therefore adopted the traditions of several cultures over the centuries. The dance known as Szot Madziar is one such dance that has been adopted from the Hungarians. The steps and intricacies of this dance were shown to me by my teacher and mentor the renowned choreographer and Polish folk expert, Leokadia Magdziarz in the 1970s
