The Vadrózsák Néptánccsoport (Wild Roses Folk Dance Group) is a native Hungarian folk dance group from Székelykeresztúr, in the Transylvanian region of Romania. They are traveling in Massachusetts, Maine, and Vermont, performing in colorful traditional costumes, as well as offering dance workshops. The group includes 17 dancers and musicians, 15 youth and two adults and are accompanied by the youth folk dance band Lelkes Zenekar (Enthusiastic Band).

The dances feature an exuberant display of intricate moves and patterns that invite participation. The live music is infectious and leaves the audience wanting to hear more. The members of the group are eager to share their excitement about their native dances and music with a New England audience.
