1983 SF Ethnic Dance Festival Auditions Backstage

We continue our journey down Memory Lane.
In January 1983, Eszterlánc auditioned for the EDF (Ethnic Dance Festival) of San Francisco. We danced circle and couple’s dances from Dunántúl.
We were in the middle of making the full costumes for the ladies, at this stage we only had the skirts ready – the blouses and headpieces came later. The pictures were taken in the backstage of EDF Auditions.
