Interview with Bolvári-Takács Gábor – new rector of the Hungarian Academy of Dance. Located in Budapest, the Dance Academy functions as a secondary school, college and now a university, offering professional dance training (dance specializations: ballet, folk, modern, ’fashion’, ballroom, theatre), as well as choreography, dance rehearsal leader, dance education, dance writing. Finishing students may earn diplomas on the secondary school, college, and university level. There are well over 100 on the teaching staff and some 600 students. Graduates are able to find work in their field. The new rector comes from an arts administration/humanities background. He works with an assistant rector who comes from Hungary’s dance world; in August, Volf Katalin will become artistic director. By Grozdits Károly.
