The Fifth Hungarian Dance Festival

Győr from 16-th June - 23-rd June 2006

The Dance Festival in Győr - Hungary's major dance festival - is organized in every second year by the National Dance Theater, the Győr Ballet and the Hungarian Dancers' Association.

The Fifth Hungarian Dance Festival could rightly be the biggest celebration in the Hungarian art of dance. In the course of this eight-day-long event the public will be presented Hungary's leading dance companies and ensembles from classical ballet, through folklore, to the modern-contemporary dance groups.

The Festival is not simply a meeting point for the performers and audience , but also a very excellent opportunity for art directors, art managers and broadcasters from all over the world to discover Hungarian dance art as well as share their opinions.

The best productions of the last two years are presented at the festival, a wide range selection of styles from classical and modern ballet to folk dance and contemporary. Two different productions are shown each night on two stages. In 2006 a showcase program will extend the full-length evening programs, which gives the opportunity to see even 18 more production excerpts.

Hungarian State Folk Ensemble - Ghymes - successfully used characteristic combination from Hungarian popular dance with classical moves.
