About Us

SzólóDuó Festival is a dance festival organized by Orkesztika Foundation in Hungary since 2005.

It is a festival based on an open application system.

At SzólóDuó we offer opportunity for individual dancers and dance groups to perform, to realise their artistic concepts, and to receive personal, detailed feedback from the international jury.

Continuing the traditions of the previous festivals, we would like to keep at our goals that apart from some regulations the dance groups can perform their shows without restrictions. All the performances will be evaluated by a professional jury and the audience.
