Tanchaz

TANCHAZ (01/21/2011)

Tanchaz was held on January 21, 2012, at Unity Church-Unitarian in St. Paul. Our Tanchaz program started with the Workshop.
More than 20 children attended with their parents at the Children Lesson, and many of us joined to the adults session to learn Hungarian folk dance steps.
 
Many thanks to all the volunteers for helping with this event!
