Hunique Dance Hungarian Folk Ensemble was founded in London in 2008. Its members are enthusiastic Hungarians living in London and its surrounding counties. They hold two rehearsals every week. On Mondays the beginners and on Thursdays the more advanced members get together to rehearse a variety of dances from different regions of Hungary. The leaders of the groups have years of experience in teaching Hungarian folk dancing. Hunique Dance also organizes Social Folk Dance events with live music once a month, where everyone is welcome. In 2017 the dance group has decided to make folk dance events for children.

In September 2013, the group has united with the Hungarian Culture and Heritage Society. Their joint aim to represent Hungarian culture and its traditions in the United Kingdom via high-quality and uplifiting performaces. Providing high-quality entertainment, in order to draw up a realistic picture of Hungary's colourful culture, is a very important goal of the organization. They organize dance workshops and events such as the Hungarian Cultural Day, where people from any cultural background can meet and learn about the customs, foods and music of Hungary. Dance workshops are organized every 6-8 weeks.

Folk dancing has always been a significant part of Hungarian culture. Hunique's goal is to preserve this fundamental tradition and pass it on, therefore it is their future aim to start up a children's dance group in order to provide opportunities for young talents to enjoy the beauties of this wonderful tradition.

Dances and costumes of the group represent the variety and richness of folkore and customs of the entire Carpathian Basin which have emerged over centuries. The dances they perfom are based on authentic film records. On performances they wear traditional folk dresses, the dancers always dance in the area matching attire.

Hunique has been representing the Hungarian culture and its customs on many occassions at different UK festivals and events, and they often perform at various Hungarian schools too.

2016 was the first year when Hunique has organized a very succesful and fun-filled dance camp which has been a 4 day event, where Hungarian dances were taught by professional dance instructors from Hungary.

Hunique has developed a great friendship with the Folktone Band and the Medve Band. These two bands are regulary provide high-quality, live Hungarian folk music on the dance workshops and the performaces. Hunique Dance group takes steps to cooperate with other nation's dance groups in UK.
