MS Folklorn studio Buchlovice consists not only dancers but a big amount of singers as well. They comprise our very succesful male choir. Its members composition is quite constant.

Male choir works under Stanislav Mikultks direction. In addition to their brilliantly harmonized voices all members of the choir can dance, too. However, their dancing skill you can watch in the only performance - "Na pivo - For the beer". Another characteristic of the members of the male choir is definitively love to wine. MS

MS From its begining, the male choir was backed only by violin, recently moravian pipes (gajdy) and small table cymballom were added up.

Events organized by Folklorn studio Buchlovice reached high popularity and permanent support from folklore patrons from regions of Uhersk Hradit and many others. High credit on this has male choir. The choir invites every year many of their colleagues to Buchlovice to Koseck psn, Representative wine exhibition and Singing about wine. In return to this, our singers are invited to the another cities and villages to similar events or male choir meetings. MS

TS Dance pairs are the basic elements of Folklorn studio Buchlovice. They show traditional movement richness, voicefulness of our songs and colorfulness and diversity of folklore costumes.

The long-standing leader of our dance group was Jana Nenikov who we recall gladly and with honor. Almost all of our former dancers experienced dancing in Folklorn studio Buchlovice under her direction. Her leadership abilities kept the dance group on high level. Jana achieved to evoke discipline and responsibility in minds of the dancers but she injected the love to dance and folklore as well. Since 2009 the dance group leader became Michala Kylinov and her enthusiasm, determination and kindness managed to bring the dance group on stages of international festivals again. TS

TS Our performances were written and composed mainly by former group leaders such as Jana Nenikov or Miloslav Hrd. These are for example traditional figural dances from Buchlovice, girls dance, dolck which contains dances from regions of Hluk, Doln Nm and Korytn or dances from astkov, Vlnov, Moravsk Kopanice or Suchov. Recently earns the dance group also new and very successful choreographies by former members of the ensemble - Pavla Veeov and Petra Kropov - the Dvoanovy sisters.

During its existence, many dancers from region of Uhersk Hradit passed through the Folklorn studio Buchlovice. Membership in the dance group brought them either unique experience from performance successes, preparation for transfer to another folklore ensemble or even final phase of their folklore career before entering to the "family life". TS

TS Childrens dance ensembles from Buchlovice are constant sources of new dancers for us. Boys and girls come to the Folklorn studio Buchlovice in age of fifteen or sixteen. They pick step by step experiences from older dancers and are involved into current performances to adopt them completely soon.

CMR Folklorn studio Buchlovice began its activities originally without any band which really wasnt very good situation for developing an ensemble. This problem was solved with cooperation with various cymballom bands, but none of them didnt last for long time, because every band went at the end of the day their own way.

This was the reason for estabilishing our own cymballom band. The ensemble conducory, especially Ji Ratica tried to raise ensembles musicians this way who would consider musical accompaniment of the ensemble as a fine activity and well-spent free time. This effort brought results in the fall 2005. Under direction of skilled musician Martin Crla arised cymballom band Slunovrat (Solstice). They gained their success as a musical accompaniment of children ensemble Dcka z Buchlovic I and II. However, in 2011, Mr and Mrs Crlovi ended their cooperation with the band and the band has been disbanded. Some of the musicians entered the cymballom band Rub or other bands and they continue in their musical development. CMR

CMR Since 2006, Folklorn studio Buchlovice cooperates with cymballom band Rub from Buchlovice with first violinist Vtzslav Preclk. This band had been estabilished in 2005, half a year after CM Slunovrats estabilishment and led by Ivo Peterka. From its beginning, CM Rub became the musical support for Folklorn studio. Staff of the band changed a lot during the first years. After Slunovrats disband, some of former musicians entered CM Rub and created already constant collective which supports us during our performances.

The cymballom band had troubles with creating its name. Alternative names such as CM Vtzslava Preclka (cymballom band of the Vtzslav Preclk), CM Preclci (Pretzels - first violinists surname is a pun for word Preclk - in english Pretzel) and CM Sklneka (glass) were in the end defeated by name CM Rub (Shroud) CMR

CMR Cymballom band Rub is very close to Folklorn studio Buchlovice, not only because without their accompaniment are our performances unconceivable but also because the band is formed by our good friends and some former dancers.

Were happy that this lot of young and progressive musicians managed to get together and we wish them many successes, many amusing collective tours and pleased moments with our music. Let the folklore songs stay in their hearts, because what goes from heart out is always beautiful. CMR
