Hungarian Heritage event organized by American Hungarian Heritage House and Marymount University.

The students of the Georgetown Prep School from Bethesda attended a Hungarian Heritage event organized by American Hungarian Heritage House and Marymount University.
The American students tasted Hungarian goulash and pogácsa. Stefan J. Fedor, President of the American Hungarian Heritage shared with students the Hungarian cultural values - Hungarikums and as part of this 2018/2019 tour to introduce Transcarpathian cultural and folk heritage of Hungarians. 
He presented the collection of dresses by Tünde Hrivnák's fashion designer. Collection included matyo and kalocsai embroideries in the modern day style as to how Hungarian folk art can continue to live in the 21st century in an innovative way. 
Dr. Stephanie Ellis Foster presented Marymount University’s succesful Global Classroom Comparative Criminal Justice Trip to Hungary. 
The events second part was the Hungarian Dances presented by Tisza Ensemble dance led by Cathy Lemont and closing was a ‘Tanchaz’ where students joined the dancers in big circle and learned the well know hungarian csardas steps.
