Head of department
The Hungarian Dance Academy/University has been training dance teachers specialized in modern dances since 1996 and as part of higher education, dance artists of modern dances since 2007. Parallel to the latter, education at the classical ballet specialization with didactically backed modern/contemporary dance teaching, has also been introduced. To meet these new requirements, an independent department for modern dances was established in 2011.
The task of the Department is to enrich future artist and teacher candidates in higher education with up-to-date knowledge and training trends to be able to meet the international standards in creative and performing arts. Students are acquainted with such technical and stylistic trends, which enable them to become specialists anywhere, in any genre and in any structure.
