Il gruppo dei bambini Hořeňáček
The children’s group HOŘEŇÁČEK contains children between the ages 3 and 16. It was founded in 1975 and since then has reached many achievements in national festivals and children’s folclore competitions. The main mission of the HOŘEŇÁČEK is to develop the folclore art of its region – Podkrkonoší and Eastern Bohemia. In its repertoire you can find songs, dances and children’s games, that evolve children’s sense for rhythm, music and motion. Its national costumes were designed by the Ethnographic Museum in Prague. The group HOŘEŇÁČEK has taken part in many important festivals in the Czech Republic, such as Festival “U nás na Náchodsku”, National folclore festivals in Strážnice, Šumperk, Luhačovice, Kyjov, Pardubice and others. The group has also taken part in many festivals abroad: in Poland, Germany, Slovak Republic, France, Lithuania, Turkey and others.
