Kricskovics Antal – choreographer, dancer. Born in 1929 near the village of Gara in the area of northern former Yugoslavia known as „Bácska". He danced professionally with the SZOT, LADO Ensembles, became director of Central Yugoslav Ensemble, danced in the Építők Ensemble, was director of the Budapest Ensemble 1976–1989 and is still active with the Fáklya Ensemble. He did field collection work the length of Hungary’s southern border with Vujicsics Tihamér. „Perhaps the most important thing is to love the culture, its people, and the region of the dance you are involved in. Get to know the people and their customs personally by eating, drinking and sleeping with them.” Interview by Paluch Norbert
