Szilárd "SziSzi" Szabó was one of the first dancers of the Bartók Ensemble under the leadership of Sándor Timár in the 1970s. He was principal dancer with the Hungarian State Folk Ensemble as well as with the Kodály Ensemble and ranks with the most exceptional dancers today in Hungary. He also was a contributing guest artist for the Ensemble.

SziSzi and his wife Ildikó Németh have earned the title "Young Folklore Artist Larueates." In addition to their current activities as directors and choreographers of their own folk dance group, Százszorszép Táncegyüttes, in Martonvásár (about 30 kilometers from Budapest), they also travel to teach dance and choreographies.

In 1995, the couple choreographed Galgamenti Táncok and Kalotaszegi Hajnali dal -- Legényes és Csárdás for the Csáardás Dance Company of Cleveland, Ohio. Istvan has been the Director of the Kárpátok Ensemble of Los Angeles, California.

Dances SziSzi and Ildikó have taught include Dances from Váilaszat, Dances from Dél-Alföld, Dances from Szék, Dances from Szilágyság, Galgamenti Táncok, and Pannonia.
