thank you for your thorough preparation for this year´s contest. Since the situation did not allow the jury members to give feedback to everyone who requested it, here are the e-mail adresses (we are going to add them gradually, after we receive the permission to post them) and FB profile links. Here :)
Dear Dancers. The competition in this year´s Pressburg Dance Fest contest was tough. Besides the option of finding links to profiles of this year´s jury on this page, we have also prepared a more detailed rating. You can also learn that only foru dancers (if we exclude the improvisation category, where the ratin scale was double) got an average mark higher than 9 (10 was max). From this point of view, Henrieta Šidlová Jr is the winner with the mark 9.4. Congratulations!!!
Dear dancers, unfortunately, Libor Hlaváček was forced to cancel his appearance on this year´s festival due to other, urgent duties in Poland. However, we are glad to anounce that our invitation was accepted by experienced Susi – Zuzana Tóthová (SK/AT), who specializes in the same field of dance and will participate as not only a member of the jury but will also teach the Sunday seminar called Ballet basics for orient and tribal dancers, aesthetics of movement. We believe that this change will not affect your decision to come to this dancers favorite seminar.
Due to organizational reasons (a great interest in the competition part of the festival), the beginning of the gala show Pressburg Dance Fest will be delayed by an hour and will begin at 8:00 p.m
As every year, this year we are also organizing the Winners’ choreography authored by our ever-present Karolina Štraus Idris. All the dancers who are interested, please write us and send your videos for the casting to email@example.com until June 15 (the preparation seminar will take place this year during the weekend on August 20th).
