The first Hungarian folk dance footage was made in 1926 or 1927 by Sándor Gönyey co-worker of the Hungarian Museum of Ethnography. Gönyey made black and white, silent motion pictures on 35mm, 16mm and 9.5mm materials. Sándor Gönyey and László Lajtha wrote together the first summary of Hungarian folk dances based on dance motion pictures in 1937. István Molnár was a dancer in the 1920s and 1930s, however he made the first folk dance motion pictures in Transilvania between 1940–1944. His recordings were also black and white and silent, just like Gönyey’s. Molnár wrote a book about folk dance teaching (Hungarian Dance Traditions, 1947). In the same time like Molnár, the Transilvanian Scientific Institute made ethnographic and folk dance motion pictures leading by László Keszi Kovács, but these films were destroyed in the WWII. The folk dance films made between 1926–1947 covered the whole Carpathian Basin, and they are the base of the institutional folk dance research in Hungary. In my paper I intend to sketch how these researchers-ethnographers (Sándor Gönyey and László Lajtha, István Molnár, László Keszi Kovács) formed the foundation of the Hungarian institutional folk dance research.
