The 18th National Solo Dance Festival in Békescsaba, Eastern Hungary Interview with Felföldi László – dance researcher and president of the jury An in-depth conversation about many, many aspects of this dance competition, the compulsory dance material, the approach members of the jury use for rating the dancers, including mention of the changes that this competition has seen over the 33 years it has been going on. In this competition, the dancers are expected to improvise for a certain portion of the dance. Professional and amateur dancers alike must be able to show a deeper knowledge and understanding of a particular dance from a particular location– a knowledge which goes on-beyond dancing a sequence of steps on stage to please an audience.
