- n. A Hungarian folk dance.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
A country festival had brought together thousands of people; they pressed about the Emperor, who had mingled with the throng, with ringing shouts of "eljen" [_vive_]; they danced the csardas, waltzed, sang, played music, climbed into the trees, and crowded the court.
Kalotaszeg is famous for its slow ornamented tunes, its swirling csardas couple dances and its showy male display pieces and there were many dancers in the audience to bring them to life.
