The Junior Tamburitzans of South Hills is a youth folk ensemble based in the South Hills of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania dedicated to preserving the arts, music, and heritage of Eastern & Central Europe.
There are no tryouts and no music or dance background is needed to join our group, just a commitment to work hard and a dedication to performing to the best of one’s ability.
Email us for more information or attend a pratice at Our Lady of Victory Church at 1000 Lindsay Road in Carnegie (minutes from Scott Township Pool). Come see us at our next practice and learn to dance Kolo!
Our group is one of about 30 Junior Tamburitzan groups in North America that strive to preserve and promote the folk arts of Central and Eastern Europe (Croatia, Slovakia, Russia, Bulgaria, Serbia, Germany, Poland, Slovenia, etc.) through dance, music, and song.
Our member students range from ages 5 to 18. Each student receives instruction and education in the art of tamburitza playing, folk dance, and song. Students also learn about the countries and cultures of Central and Eastern Europe. Through public performances, the group promotes public interest and awareness of the rich cultural diversity known throughout these European regions.
Our instructors include a former Duquesne Tamburitzans member and current choreographer, Juraj Adamik and Mary Magdic, a strings teacher in a local school district.
Folk dances and music are challenging and fun to learn. With the direction of experienced instructors, students are able to enjoy and develop music and dance talents. Each student is encouraged to perform to the best of their ability, and there is a place for everyone in the festival-like atmosphere of the group’s performances.
