Tough question - I know Hungarian folk dance style when I see it, but putting it into words boggles my mind.

Your best bet is to contact a group. Here are some links:
DC area:
Sarasota Fl workshop this March: . . .
Sauk Valley, Mi Workshop, the week of July 4:

Or, to compare many folk styles, go to Youtube and look up "Duquesne University Tamburitzans" That group is good!, and it does a lot of Hungarian and Ukranian dance.

While I never have seen that group do Spanish flamenco, it does a lot of gypsy dance, which has the same roots as flamenco.
