Pressburg Dance Fest 2017
The festival Pressburg Dance Fest has become a traditional event, every end of September making Slovakia’s capital Bratislava dance.
Our goal is to support the oriental dance as an art with its whole spectrum of styles, so that it no longer be perceived as a cheap entertainment, but to respect the historical background and the present modern evolution of dance.
The festival, traditionally, consists of an oriental dance competition (Friday and Saturday) for dancers of different expertise levels. Adults and children participate in it, there is no upper age limit. The artists will show their best during Saturday’s gala show which also comprises a fashion show. Professional dance workshops and lectures will take place on Sunday. The festival will be ended by a proper oriental Hafla (party) joined by an open stage.
Another regular thing is the Winners’ choreo. It is a special choreography created by the main guest of the festival. The idea is to make possible for any talented dancer to dance on the stage with a well-known artist.
