“The Rezeda Association for Traditional Hungarian Dance in Frankfurt, Germany represents a similar minority as do patients with central nervous system disorders, however unlikely to them we have much more opportunities to be accepted with our performances. nevertheless, we feel the sorrow and isolation of being a minority and somehow isolated from our fellow citizens. We support the campaign, as we believe, that everybody with handicap and brain diseases deserves the same attention as anybody else, and further we know, that prevention programs for some neurological diseases could be more effective with more significant involvement of the society. We prevent stroke with dance, twice a week regularly. We are under the umbrella showing our motto :’dance under the umbrella prevents brain disease patients’.”
