Girls, boys, young women and men have been adjusting their personal lives to the folklore group for twenty five years. They have often missed family celebrations, work in the garden, meetings with friends because of perfoming. They were often tired and sad, but the smile in their face revealed their professionalism. The whirl of dance made them forget all the worries.

This way the folklore group came into existence in 1983. Ms Marta Hermanová, a former employee at the Town Centre of Culture and Ms Zuzana Kiššová are two ladies that stood at its beginning. The latter one was the first manager of the group. They are considered the Fates that gave the group a sniff of life. Thier enthusiasm inspired other young people who stood at the birth of the group such as Ivan Kozai, Anka Števulová - Kozaiová, Čeňo Meňhert, Ruženka Pániková - Meňhertová, Jožko Križan, Gabika Mráziková - Skačanová, Janko Kršák, Gabika Kopčová, Emil Solčiansky, Vierka Kováčová - Koprdová, Antalová.

Their simple dancing components reminded baby´s first modest steps. The steps that were gradually becoming more confident and secure. The accordion played by Mr Toma was the only musical instrument accompanying their dancing performances. Two years later the group got a new manager Ing, Cyril Lazúr. The dances bacame more compact. He ctreated the choreography for dances, for girls and boys, so called dances from life and dances from Esat Slovakia and Detva. Mr Toma was joined by other musicians, soldiers from Basic Military Service in Nitra who came to play the cymbalo and violin. The quality of the music improved and became mightier. They participated in an army competition called ASUT in Kroměříž and won the first price. It was their first big trip and aroused in them the desire to discover other countries, to spread Slovak songs and dances around the world.

Then the year 1990 came when Mr Lazúr passed his position to a new but experienced dancer Ing. Radovan Bakaľár. It was the following years that proved that this choice was correct. Mr Bakaľár became the choreographer and manager at the same time. He was recruiting new members, looking for musiacians, gaining money for costumes, discovering old and even older songs.. And he created.. He created the dance for boys – bašistovská and he finished the dance from Lehota. For the first time they went abroad performing five dances and then they made more trips every year. There were more dances, costumes, people. Our people were opening their hearts and the audience eyes. Is it possible for such a small country like Slovakia to have such cultutral wealth? Thanks to his amazing abilities, the manager gained contacts in the countries of almost all of the Europe.
