Dear Dancer, Choreographer, Dance Teacher Colleague!
You may have lost your income/job and now, even after two months, you don't even see the "end of the tunnel". As a non-hungarian citizen you may or not apply for the FESZ's aid to "theatrical background professionals", the Thália Theater's aid to "independent performers" and EMMI's "independent performers' aid". You have to try, but you may not get from all all or even one of them. Any way we thought you might need some money to survive critical times.
We are in a relatively lucky position:
– Our current BA students receive a thorough lesson from independence, and online forms of communication also work.
Any school has 3 main functions: give information, enrich creativity, develop socialization. The first is now pushed somewhat behind, the second continues, and the third has unprecedented opportunities. The compilation of One A Week One Minute Videos will hopefully give you an idea of this.
– For teacher MA students, it is not a big difference whether we sit around the round table in person or from home, the papers have to be submitted online anyways.
So we have adapted to the situation, of course it will be good to dance together again.
– The staff – Petra, Kamilla and I – is building the future of the school – new courses, new location – and we are not really hindered by the curfew limitations.
This is an "ALUMNI" aid. We undertook to support our former students in the field of contemporary dance – from Adrienn Hód and Tamás Bakó to last year’s graduates – who have finished school (4 years later 5 in the vocational high school, and/or 4 years in the Academy, or 3 years later) regardless if after completed studies by agreement, they eventually obtained a graduation certificate, a diploma or not, Hungarians or foreigners, working at home or elsewhere.
We have created a simple online query to read, fill and submit. We will ask for details from those who receive the support. Every two weeks we are planning subsidies of HUF 50,000, depending on the needs and possibilities. Until cancellation, we review claims every Monday and try to make a quick decision and pay the same week. We will send the amount to your account.
Of course, we also accept grants for this fund, which is managed separately within the New Performing Arts Foundation:
