While Éva is best known in the Minnesota Hungarian community as the dancer who teaches and runs the program at the MN Hungarians folk dance parties (Táncház), she is well-known throughout the US as an expert in Hungarian folk arts having choreographed and taught from San Francisco to Boston.
Locally, she is a resident choreographer for the Ethnic Dance Theatre and serves as Chair of the EDT Board. One of her choreographies will be shown on March 20-22 as part of EDT's spring show. Éva completed a bachelor's and master's degrees in education before studying in Budapest at the State Ballet Institute's Folk Dance Department and was a guest artist with the Bartók Ensemble under the mentorship of Sándor Timár.
Éva also gives beginning Hungarian language lessons in the Twin Cities.
